Rich thanks I will do that. Right now Im shaping the handle and nocks then I will shoot it a bunch more and adjust with my scraper. I almost hate to admit this but I didnt tiller  it with a scraper or any other steel tool :'( I know its not very primitive but Im already using bandsaws glue ect so for this one I tried tillering the whole thing with my orbital sander. Worked great and it was pretty fun too I could feel a lot of control. I would not recommend this method to someone unless you are good with a sander because if you stop on one spot you could ruin the bow in 2 seconds ;D I used a slow speed and 150 grit to finish up tillering. I will use a scraper to fine tune it while shooting.

Jesse,  ;DI love it..I also use my bench sander to the point where bows are very close to being strung, I clean up the marks and do subtle adjustments with a scraper, or sandpaper.

Thanks I was kind of debating that myself :D I like the feel of a leather grip but it does look nice bare also. Maybe I will put on the leather with no glue and see whats better before gluing it down. At a minimum I have to put something on the rest to quiet the draw.
