My cell fone don't know which way is up!  :biglaugh:


I have that same problem postin pics here from by phone. I can either email them to myself and then download to my laptop, or just post em from the phone and let y'all hafta stand on yer head to look at em. Its kinda a photoshop roulette.

Looking good Kenny  :bigsmyl: Even if the overlay is crooked as hell.  :biglaugh:

Those flexible rasps are handy. I use them a lot.  Use a very thin strip in the string groove to take care of sharp edges.

You can download an app called "photo and Picture Resizer"  for free.  It will resize,flip and crop AND saves the original as it was.   From there it's easy to post from the phone.

I've seen sanding string somewhere as well that would be great in nock grooves...

I've got some of that sanding cord stuff, is kinda handy for string grooves. Easier than tryin to peel skinny strips of sandpaper.

For those string grooves get you some emery cloth. I got 80 and 320 grit. Take your box cutter and start cuts on the end about 3/16s wide then rip it into strips. Clamp one end down then roll it like twisting a string. The 80 will take material out. then 320 to finish.

In that second pic, I think I'll change the profile of the riser to where the point is at the maple stripe ...
Stay sharp, Kenny.
