I have my Birds eye Maple block ready. I laid some maskingtape over it and and drew my centerline on it. Now I am ready to trace the profile of the bow on it and cut it out.
Now it is cut out so I am going to sand it in so I get a really good fit to the riser, I have a pretty good fit now.
Now I am going to trace the same arc again about a 1/2" down and cut it out agian so I can put an accent strip of osage in the riser
Here is a pic of the riser now all ready to be glued up.
