Nice job. Question...could you have built that bow any shorter?

yeah, you can go shorter, especially if you go with a bendy handle, you also have draw length to consider, just remember that the shorter you go the more perfect your form has to be, short bows are not as forgiving as one like this,

Good build, Bub. They should put this in build a longs for future reference. IMHO. :)

Great build and superb final result Bub. I'm with George, after 5 hours I'm still lookin at the board. After ripping it like that on the tablesaw, was the tiller bang on or how much adjustment/scraping did you have to do?

thank's randman, every once in a while the tiller is spot on and i just sand and go, but most of the time it's like every other bow, scrape scrape, exercise, repete, but this is especially the way to go if you have to build a bunch of bows fast, like if your gonna give them to the scout's or something, Bub

That is really cool bub... almost makes me want to go out and go shopping for board... almost >:D I have always wanted to try maple... is that your preference over the other woods as far as board Bows go?
Is this bow making a sickness? or the cure...
