Beautiful! Yew and skins make a great combi! How does it shoot? I would think it spits them out pretty good with that length and those hooks. Personally I would give the outer third of the top limb a few scrapes but I have never done a sinew backing so I could be wrong

Thank you all once again for the awesome compliments.

Good eye Leon. After looking at the FD pick I was back and forth about whether or not to do just that. I held off because it looked pretty balanced, but I suspect after a year or so of shooting the tiller could shift a little into the negative with the extra stress on the bottom limb.

Please all, feel free to let me know what you think about this. I'm always striving to improve.  )P(

I've been on here for years it seems, and just fade in and out of making bows but am getting back into it now that retirement is 5 days away! What is being crafted now is at the pinnacle of craftsmanship and artistry with function - these beauties will cast an arrow with authority!
I'm humbled by how your skill level has escalated, and I put your bows "right up there" with the finest I'm seeing as of late. The lines and finish work are beyond reproach. You've set the bar high for us.!!!

Thanks Brad. You're right about sinewed bows, they kinda have minds of their own.  (W  ;D

Geez barebo, that's probably the nicest thing I've ever read. Congrats on the retirement! I've still got 20 or so years of teaching left to go.  (R Work's been especially stressful lately, so your encouraging words come at a really great time. Thank you my friend.  :)

 Looks good but it is  bending a bit more in the bottom already.   Flip your picture vertically and you'll see it.
