Saved the pictures to remind what, in my eye, near perfection in this design looks like.
Lovely lines.

I've never been a Molly/holmgaard fan...but your looks great.  I guess some day I need to learn how to make a bow that only bends in part of the limb and doesn't take any set...  :BB  Would you give the limb profile dimensions?

Have to say you nailed it. I was wondering about limb dimensions also.

Very nice!   You have to have some skill to pull that unbraced profile off with such a small working area.  And nice shooting gloves  :D

Sweet bow! I love those curvy shapes with narrow levers. Smooth and fast!

What a bow, what a killer-tiller - Congrats bushboy!

I was never sure if I like the molle-design, but with these recurves...I think now I know what to try soon with this elm-stave I was promised by a friend... :BB

Thanks guys.the bow is 61" ttt,4" handle,fade are 1-1/2" and 2" wide,tapering down to 1"@ 14" from the fade and the beginning of the upper fade transition.the levers are 12" long to the tips,about 9/16" thick and 1/4" wide at the tips.i normally shy away from making the levers this long but there was a knot that I had to deal with.truelly a very stressed design but good elm is amazing stuff!thxs bush!
Some like motorboats,I like kayaks,some like guns,I like bows,but not the wheelie type.

  That's really good stuff.  Good high weight for a shorty and beautiful strung profile and tiller.

Thatís awesome! Beautiful profile! Amazing, that you could pull off a design that has more stiff than working parts with almost zero set!
Congrats!
 :OK
Btw - would you tell me the brace height of that bow?
