Oh, I will post a Full Draw later today, as soon as possible. Today my wife is prepping (for a Colonoscopy tomorrow) and anyone who knows about that (as I too well do) will understand why I have to wait untill she feels free to get far enough away from the "terlet" to take the pics for me -  ;D

LOL - - It was no easy trick, Dana - and the rascal cut my finger doing it too! Thanks a lot for the comment.

Here are the FD pics. The frontal my wife missed the tip a little but she did pretty good for her "weakened" condition -  ;):

Thanks for the "Heads Up", Bernie. I did miss this bow.  I kept looking at the words "my next bow" and didn't realize it was a new bow. BOM voting tomorrow, everybody :)

Bernie, I really enjoyed watching this.  Tiller looks great, and it should be a sweet shooting bow.

The senior crowd has kept me busy making these blanks. I'd guess the average age is over 70. It's a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing many well into their golden years are still making bows..

But as long as you are still shaving seals..you obviously have a smooth touch!

 :D You guys know how to warm an ol' feller's heart - and raise a chuckle or twice - I love it. It really is a sweet shooter, Rich, and I thank you for the idea in the first place, the nice glue-up in the second place, the encoragement in the third place, and your kind comments. Pat, as always that means an extra lot from you. Josh, I think the next one will be another Osage of some sort, as soon as I pick up a stave, and thanks for clueing me in as to why I keep not filling my deer tags -  :D. OldBow, I'm sorry about that - I've got to start watching how I title my threads (as I think I promised to do once before - Doh!).

  Great bow, Bernie! Rich has me hesitating on building another BBI with the senior citizen comment. But, then again I do qualify for the AARP membership now. ;D

LOL - I don't think "SC" is a prerequisite, mullet. BTW, Frank, I appreciate your comment also and didn't mean to overlook you earlier.

I took the Brace height up to 5" on Cowgirl and took her out for a dark of the moon run just now. She likes it fine  ( and so do I  ;))
