I floor tiller all the way to full brace. both limbs are worked at the same time. I use calipers a lot to compare thickness between limbs at certain points. This isn't surefire, but it sure has sped up the beginning tiller process. Final tiller I'm still overly causous about tho.

I think she's done. Got the grip on today, did a skived leather grip, the racket type, whatever thy are called.  Got it dyed, and on, just need to put a coat of resolene on and some mink oil and it'll be good to send out. I'm pretty stoked to get this to my guy.

For floor tillering I look to see that each limb is bending evenly. As tillering progresses my goal is to have both limbs bending evenly and together.

Brad, is that cherry bark on the back of that osage? Looks cool  8)

P.S. I like the "bag of rocks method." You know for sure that you're never going over your intended weight. Might just have to try that myself. I've got plenty of rocks! )P(

I gotta say that the quality of your work has advanced several orders of magnitude in the last few years. You are definitely paying attention in school!

Long ways since the whoopin stick eh?  Thanks Jw.

And even that one was a utilitarian and functional shooter.
