So I'd "only" need a 76" ttt board for a 33" draw? (unless I wanna start drawing to my chin instead of to behind my ear :|) wonder if that'd have handshock. I like the look of pyramid bows. Real simple. Takedown one would be nice...

Loin i would think 70" ntn would be plenty of length although 33 seems super long draw length

What is the reason for stopping the rip at the fade marks? i feel like it is probably obvious but i am just not seeing it. TIA

The reason is the handle, rip the full length glue a larger handle on and when tillering if it gets bending to close to the fades a common occurrence, the handle pops off

Really hoping I'll have time to do this, planning to do a few maple and hickory bows this way

Would these dimensions be reasonable for a 70#@28.5" hickory bow?

Thanks

you would need to start with a thicker limb for 70# but the basic design will be fine

I know thisis kinda old but I gotta say this was a GREAT build along. So kudos man. What would be a good thickness for a 60in hickory? TIA

If u want to err on the side of caution just go 1/2" thick and tiller to weight

Is that your son in those pics bub? Sure don't look like you :)

Thenks for the build along.  I am very new to all of this and appreciate the post.  I've tried my first hickory board bow and followed your instructions as best as I could.  I had what I thought was a nice quick shooting bow at around 40# but after about a few dozen arrows I could hear popping in the limbs.  Thinking it was about to either explode or lift a splinter, I stopped shooting.  I noticed that you didn't scrape the back to "chase the ring"  .  Is this not required on a board bow?  I've built a few maple sapling bows and while they are very light in draw weight, I didn't have to chase the ring.  I would appreciate your comments. thanks again.

This post oughtta be stickied, imo.
