Test shots with new with Flemish twist 7" From  back, String twisted a bit more for stretching   Almost final tiller? Looks a bit weaker on the right side upper limb I usually leave it that way on any other bows but a Holmgaard not sure.
Range at 10 yards
Almost done ,be patient ;D

Hey, PK
Looks like a Holmie to me!! I tiller the limbs on a Holmegaard to be even.
If I was you, I would lighten your outer limbs a bit, especially out towards the nocks. Heavy tips rob cast, and make for more hand shock. Otherwise, it looks terrific.
You're absolutely doing the right thing with your tillering, by ignoring the outer non-bending limbs, and just looking at the inner limbs. Good job! Holmegaard's are awesome, yes?

PK the tiller looks good. It has nice clean lines.  I think you could eliminate some mass from the non bending limbs.  I would taper the width of the non bending portion in just a couple of inches, then run parallel the rest of the way.  It is twice as thick as the inner limb so it is 8 times as strong.  Don't narrow so much you loose stability, but narrow more.  Justin

Looks good PK, why don't you post the finished bow in the "BOWS" section.

Yes, looks good.  Make a new post in the bows section. It helps everyone (especially Old Bow) find the completed bow since everyone don't keep up with build alongs.  Justin
