TB 3 is good and very water resistant.

You need to use a glue with no creep for an application like that.

Pat I'm sorry but I'm kinda dumb when it comes to glues. I'm not sure what "no creep" means. I'm guessing that it's something not absorbed by the wood. I might have to look up some of the glue post
I've read but not really paid enough attention to.

The tight bond glues have a little creep or slide action but if you do like Erick said with the lams or use strips of leather you should be ok . this is one reason i went to a bow epoxy

Thanks Bubby don't imagine you can buy that glue at hardware store? Probably best bet would be 3r?

Well I got this one tillered to where I have to start working close to the fades and it needed handle for that. I took Eric's advice and cut 3 narrow strips, 2 black walnut and 1 Mulberry. After fileing and scrapping everything as flat as I could get it I glued it up with TB2.  I roughed out the fades handle still needs shaping but I think this will work. Thanks for the help everyone

You're fade angle is still a bit too steep/abrupt.  You'll have better luck with a flatter transition from riser block to limb.  Josh

I finished up this handle I really like how it turned out. It is 7/8" wide where arrow contacts
handle.It shoots the same spine arrows right or left hand and my friend likes how it fits his hand. Original plan was to wrap handle but it shoots nice off knuckles and he likes how it looks naked. I put one more thin piece of cedar on. Thanks again for all the help

Thanks Bob, I've always put arrow shelfs in my handles but I've been shooting left handed a lot lately. I made a left hand handle with arrow shelf for my son and now this ambidextrous handle. I'm actually getting pretty comfortable shooting left handed and like the shoot opportunities it could provide.
