Don't  know what I'm talking about, but maybe a flatbow, Meare Heath, or similar design?  For some reason, I like the Meare Heath pattern, worked 3k years ago, might be pretty good pattern, Hope to try it!

Nice as this peice is I think I will go with an ELB that I can actually enjoy using so will shoot for a 45 lb
So if I do that can I rip a slat of the belly that would be enogh to make a baboo backed bow also
I realize that puts this under the wrong heading so will most likely start a new post
Just wanted to ask here first
Thanks for your help and kind words

As you rough out a stave the slat that comes off the belly tens to be thick at the ends and thin in the middle. This can be cut in half and turned ends to middle and spliced and boo backed :)
I've done that with a couple of bits sawn off from the belly of warbows.
