Generally, my personal kink is the simplest of primitive bows, bend-thru-handle, no shelf, no recurve, no decurve, no stiff handle, just a stick stickbow.

That being said, ya nailed this one!  I like how the natural materials are readily apparent, not made to look like an overly machined modern "Trad" bow. The blend of woods in the grip area is gorgeous.  Aesthetics aside, great job on the tiller for this design. This bow has got to perform nicely and I hope it brings you years of joy!
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

That is a pretty bow! Donít see that many forward handle bows made of wood! Unbraced and tiller are spot on so I bet is is a real shooter!

Thanks guys.  Your compliments are much appreciated. 

JW, I hear you on the primitive sticks.  My bow building journey has kinda led me down this path of lamination's, but I have always felt the more primitive styles calling me.

My head is spinning on this bow! This took a lot of skill to finish! Love everything about it, I have to try this one day myself. Really unique bow, congrats!
