Use a draw knife bevel side down to get real precise controlled cuts. Works really well on winter cut wood when your shaving off cambium

Some awesome tips and tricks here. 

Donít mind the messy shop in the pic but hereís a couple of not so clear pics of my inverted tiller set up and scrape set up.  Essentially itís a tiller tree turned upside down with couple pulleys at the top and one at the bottom to speed up tillering for the initial stage.  It speeds things up a bit between scraping and checking for tiller without moving the bow. 

Sticks and stones and other poky stabby things.

For those aggravated by scorching marks on the backs of bows from heat treating on forms wider than their bow......
I have an especially wide form to accomodate snaky bows.I tried a 5 yard sample of aluminum foil heat duct tape on the back of a bow once.

It worked great so I've bought 55 yards of the stuff.

You got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything.
