Well I'll never post a photo of a bow again.

That is absolutely unreal. Gorgeous work!

Most excellent!using a r/d limb profile is quite genius!
Some like motorboats,I like kayaks,some like guns,I like bows,but not the wheelie type.

Thanks again for all the compliments. These kind of builds take me a long time but I really enjoy it. I have a couple of really perfect staves lying around but somehow I always take the gnarly ones first ;D

Very nice!
I love that shape!
Where does it start to bend? The fades looking quite stiff.
I have a similar Profil on a brunch of purple leaf plum, that's why I'm asking

Thanks!
The fades are actually working quite a bit, even the handle flattens out a tiny amount at full draw. I tried to get the whole limb working because it is easy to create a hinge in the deflexed part because the leverage is a bit different then on normal straight handle bows.

Sometimes I feel like, asking too much for what I have to give.

This is honestly one of the most beautiful bows I have ever seen! The curves are just perfect and I love the deep colour of Laburnum! I can imagine that it took you a lot of patience to make it - but it was definitely worth every second!
My favorite for BOM...

Leon, unfortunately this bow is so ugly you should DEFINITELY give it away to some loser friend! Hmmm I would recommend someone who’s name starts with a J! :P ;)
As you already know this bow is insanely well crafted especially considering how crooked it was! And no I won’t stop telling people how good you are at building bows. Hats off!
See you soon & cheers,
Jaap
