Going to have to go get some more wood stocked up as big dog prefers darker colored woods and I am pretty much out of anything worthy of a bow.I will have to glue up the risers then run them up to vince for the cnc process.I will keep you posted.

Gonna let Larry be creative. The only thing I really wanted is a high wrist pistol grip. Really looking foward to watching the build. Regards

I cannot load pictures again for some reason.Its not on my end nothing has been changed and I never had this issue before...The bow is going to be made out of GONCO ALVEZ AKA...TIGERWOOD.

From: elkherder
Date: 29-May-18




Going to be a very sweet looking bow if I don't blow it and run off the road.Lol.Hang on people!

From: Big Dog
Date: 29-May-18




Larry could be that the pic is to high resolution making it too large a file to upload....just a guess. These newer phones go cand razy on the cameras anymore. If tthat's the case maybe someone who is a little more phone literate can speak up and help out. Regards

Ok...I had one bow ahead of yours that was going to a Iraqi vet until I screwed it up.Not sure what happened but it was a catastrophic no no it appears....So..i moved on to your bow to get the bad vibes out of my head....I got your riser all glued up and baking.

From: elkherder
Date: 06-Jun-18




It should be a real sweet shooter like the rest of them have been.All bamboo limbs except for some thin veneers of the tigerwood.Will surely be very very smooth.

From: elkherder

Got the riser all nice and tapered paper thin at the fades.Got the laminations all cut on the saw and ready to be tapered.Went to change out the sandpaper and my damn jet thickness sander fell apart on me.I pressed the arm in to release the strip and same on other end when I came back to insert new one it was all loose and not correct anymore.Then I went to take the little tiny screw out to pull it outand the only phillips head screw on the damn thing stripped right out.This bow better turn out good or I will implode.Lol.Got to take it apart,drill a hole in screw then easy out it.
