Nice work Jonas. That stave looks a bit more challenging than the average stave. Reminds me of the HHB I made for my son.

That's quite a snake you got there! Really nice to turn that into a shooter!

That one does have a little snake to it.  In the unbrace profile which limb is the bottom?  The fads may need to bend a little more pending which one is the bottom. JIMHO......Assuming the left limb is the bottom, it looks good in the FD pic but I think for longevity of the bow I would have made the limbs equal as possible at the unbraced pic.  It is apparent one limb is working more than the other in the full draw.....again JMO
