Been away from the bench for a while. Had quite a few non archery non-bowbuilding things to get done.  So I'm straightening up my under sized all purpose room and in the process knocked a bunch of strings off the wall that were hanging on a peg.  Decided to sor them and bag them up. 



Ended up tossing ten and keeping 30.  Mostly of no use but ok for tillering.  First archery related activity since the end of September.  :tongue:

I had an educational morning watching You tube videos on how to adjust a machinist slide table. I was milling a riser first thing this morning for a full overlay G-10 overlay and noticed my table was moving a wee bit right at the end of the travel. I could actually see it in the cutter depth as it moved.. I'm only talking about a few thousandths, but .005 thousandths on a machinist table is WAY out... The specs are .001 - .0015....  So i had to pull some maintenance, and learn how to adjust it....

Fortunately i have all the dial indicators necessary to do it, and it didn't take too long at all. I spent more time watching You tube than getting it dialed in again..... But it was interesting....  Kirk

Here I thought we had an arctic front going on at 18 degrees with 30 mph winds and sleet and snow covering the Portland area. I haven’t seen those kind of temps since I lived in Alaska.

  Unfortunately, my shop isn’t insulated very well, and keeping it warm enough to work out there is almost impossible at sub freezing temps. Everything that can freezer goes into a couple insulated rooms that I heat with light bulbs, and I stay in the house by the wood stove myself.

What have you got going there bro… Zebra wood, with an overlay thumb ledge?

Yes, we were due for a cold snap it’s been a very mild winter so far the whole country needs snow or it’s gonna be awfully dry. Yes, a zebra riser with a Wenge beam I really don’t like the looks of the added thumb rests. This is only the second one I’ve done just winging it I do like the comfort in the grip with it , The first one I did without an accent, it was with a piece of that rosewood. I got you that bit me :biglaugh: Here’s a picture of the first one I did,  again didn’t know what I was doing. Just did it. I  tried to make this one blend in a bit with the grain ,no accent I kinda like the looks a little better.

I like the look of the thumb ledge with the accent. It makes it less noticeable when the grain doesn’t match exactly.
