Hi,

A nice piece of work, looks great.  Just out of interest, what brace height have you found good for that bow?  I'm working on something similar, but have never made a recurve before.  Your info would be a great short-cut tip for me...

Hi Bob, l've done some adjustments on the bow after l posted it here. l've found that the bow shoots the best at a 6.75'' brace height but your bow might shoot differently. Thanks for your comments. :)

That's  a striking  looking  bow, some  first  rate  primitive  technique  too:) That's  a short  window  height, how  does  that  affect  your  sight  picture?
