I make mine with symmetrical risers (and limb length) and then let the bow tell me which end is up at first stringing.  But I’m kind of lazy and it makes tillering go quicker.

Ditto,  although I have an asymmetrical design that I'll try.  I go 14 or 15 inches so it is a little easier.

I build all my risers symmetrical 14-15" fade to fade depending on bow length. I place the shelf 1 1/4" above the centerline of the bow making the bottom limb slightly shorter, this creates a built in positive tiller. I only run the belly glass up the riser ramp. I like the looks of the steep ramps but it does make for difficulty getting a good glue line especially with .050" fiberglass. This is just my 2 cents and what I see most In Hill style bows.
