i've had this in the works for a while now, eastern black walnut board stock, backed with some birch that i got from halfeye, still stretching her out some ,started shooting @ 24" and will end up 29", 66" ntn, 1 7/8 @ the fades, pyramid taper with glued on reflexed tip's, still got some sanding and finish to do but thought i'd post some pic's, it's still nice and flat after being strung and shot some, Bub

Sweet bow Bubby!! That Rich guy is an awfully generous fellow. I have a maple backed birch molle in the process. The Birch also came from Rich. Where's that full draw pic? Gotta love walnut too.

Man Bub that bow is damn near perfect. Love everything about her and great unbraced profile.
