Very beautiful bow!
Was the knot left with an extra growth ring or 2 above the back?
I'm working on one now with some proud knots I hope look as good  8)
Without OCD, none of this would be possible!!

 Hi DuBois (another french name that fits with selfbow making),

Thanks !  no extra growth ring on the knot it is not necessary and even risky on bending parts  i think ...

Thanks guys !

M2A, I made some decoration with simple lines  grooved on the handle with a bone tool  (before assembling and stitching of course)

White felt (sized chair leg tip) is color coordinated with  the white antler tips, allows constant hand placement and better arrow sliding.

The bow has a dacron string for daily training and a linen string for our "european prehistoric competitions"

I wish i had a speed chrono i can't tell ...

(You can see on the pictures the wood was not lin seed oiled yet )

That is a really good looking bow. I love the leather work you did.

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

Nice to find another bowyer who follows this practice about knots. I point out the the grain does not run up to a knot and stop, it goes around.

Thanks !
 Jim Davis I thought a  bowyer with a minimum of experience would  know about knot and grain ?
