Hate that!  The one I built for Bue in a swap did same thing. Had it totally finished and drew it and heard the tic.  Cracked around the top of the sleeve.  So I put it in the shooter and dry fired it at 32" . :biglaugh:

Hmmm, didn't blow up so I set it back and finally redid it.  Haven't ground the handle back yet.
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Roy I noticed the carbon layer seemed mushy. That could be I did not get it fully wetted out but then there was all the other wrap over it and resin should have squeezed down in it okay. The regular glass  was solid.
So can't really say for sure. I really think just the glass is plenty strong with no carbon. So on the next one I think a colored thread is what I will use as an indicator so not to shape too deep in the throat area.

Not today but yesterday, I got my first official haircut at the barber shop after over a year. My wife did give me a trim a few months ago but it's just not the same as a professional haircut. Anyway here is a before and after shot. When I asked our daughter what she thought she said I don't look as crazy.  :dunno:  :saywhat:
Before...

OMG I'm cleaning up in back room , I have the worlds biggest supply of junk osage I'm sure.  :laughing:

A few decent pieces mixed in.  Have a pile  2.25" thick that has been stickered for 3 years in barn, says it is 7%  but I'm not sure of that.
Stay sharp, Kenny.

Pat ya look 20 years younger...

Kenny good find...

Tillered out a BBO today, easiest bow I've tillered yet cause the arrow shelf is 1.25" above bow center instead of the 2" I used to do.

Don't worry stickypops, your bow was 1.25" above center too, but this bow was tillered for 3 under so it was even easier than the split finger your bow is.
