Wow a natural materials Black Widow.  Very nice.

Did you make sure you staggered the nodes on the back and belly lams?  And how much do you sand down the nodes?

       The great advantage to reverse handled bows is they are very stable  and accurate to shoot . Compare a deflexed riser on a horse bow for example , a real handlfull to stop that riser torquing in your hand . Excellent craftmanship and design  . regards Perry

Great job.  This bow has excellent design and workmanship.  I have built some handle forward designs and I find that they are very stable because your hand is well ahead of the limbs as you draw.  It also gives you a longer pull and less stack.  I really like the bamboo belly and back.  Great bow.
