Got it braced, the it blew at about 45lb @14"

That's pretty much the exact same thing that happened with the last one.

Obviously personal preference, Jay,  but I'm trying to guide you towards getting a bow in your hand the easiest  and quickest way possible.

But I can see you want to go about it your way.

So I shall leave you be.  :)

If you don't have any questions you must not be paying attention.

From what I saw you went for a perfect shape over following the rings and grain. If you want to make a bow like that you need something like yew. Your trying a bow wood that is a challenge for a expert bowyer. From the photos I saw I would not use that wood. It is not tight ringed old growth. Unless you just like sympathy don't even think about posting your about to break box elder bow. I'd take pine over that wood. Love your effort but want to see you make a shooting bow with a easier wood

Jay,
You should be able to Find some good hickory back there.  Somebody may trade you a stave.
