Interesting looking bow.  Love the contrast between the black and cherry.  Hope it shoots as sweet as it looks.

Very nice Bubby, the cherry has a nice color to it.  I like that width profile.  How wide are the siyahs?  Looking forward to f/d

Another great looking bow! As for the backing, did you use a birch board? I've seen birch bark backing, but from your pics, it doesn't look like bark and I haven't seen birch used as a backing yet.

Yes it was from a birch board, I've used it before and it works
