I have never heard of one coming apart in a sudden or dramatic fashion.  You should get plenty of years of work out of this one!
Guns have triggers. Bicycles have wheels. Trees and bows have wooden limbs.

I ran across this while looking for some rattan handle wrap at Frank's cane supply's.
Nice build, what size Rattan is needed to build a bow 30/40#?
I would rather fail trying to do something above my means, Than to succeed at something beneath my means.
