That is the simplest steamer I've ever seen.
You've got to be proud of this recurve. Bookmarked, too, for July Self Bow of the Month. Want to email me a larger picture of the full draw? oldbow9634@msn.com

That looks good.  Nice bend.  I like your boiling setup, too.   :)

Thanks! l think boiling limbs is the easiest way to make recurves! l've tried dry heat and steam but boiling is by far the best way for me.  ;D  I'm working on another one right now and this ones going to have way more curves......if it doesnt break that is. :D

l boiled the limbs for about an hour or so and about 2/3 of the way up the limb from the tips so it would wrap around my form.
