Soo I came home to two boxes from M2A.... good lord guys this bow and quiver is masterfully done. I love it. And the arrows fit right into the quiver and the bow just shoots full length arrows. Send them screaming across into my target. This is extremely well done and I will post pictures as soon as I can of this beautiful bow and quiver.

Grats Ben! That's some big news there.

Sure am glad things made it there Mafort. Was a lot of fun to work on and turned out better than I would have thought starting in on it. Hope it servers you well for a long time.

I finally had a day to finish my trade bow.  I hope my guy likes it.  I will get it in the mail no later than Saturday.  Here it is:

Oh boy, your bows are looking fantastic!

I've had a few delays with work but I think the tiller is getting close. Maybe the mids and outers need to come round a teeny bit more

Man, you guys are showing some top notch stuff, hope to comment on the other threads tonight.

Stuck, I think you come a long way with that piece. I think you should have added an unbraced photo as well. Don't think I could tackle a piece like that but your getting close. 20 inches is when I usually know if a bow will do well or not. You may want to draw a side profile of the bow, take picture, now to compare later(to avoid set as much as you can). Good luck

I got some time to shoot my bow from Jeff and man I'm impressed!  To be honest I thought there would be some shock considering the mass of this bow, but I was wrong.  It's a smooth shooter and has some pop to it.  I'm used to my bows being borderline underbuilt, and this bow has proven to me that I need to beef up my designs.  And what I like most about it, I feel very comfortable pulling this bow to full draw.  I short draw and squint my eyes when drawing some of my bows. 
The tiller didn't change one bit either after a couple dozen shots and being drawn to 28"+. 
I really like the character of the stave, the recurves, and the blue chips that filled the knot holes. 
Excellent job Jeff! Like I said it's a beauty and a beast, and I'm lucky to have it!
