More on the Sycamore. Seems I'm not the only one to build a Keebler Elf house in one.

That bow looks sweet!  Id love to shoot it.  Have you tried thumb release on this one yet???
Sticks and stones and other poky stabby things.

Yes i'm started on the first draft. How long this is going to take is anybodies guess though! I'm hoping to get stuck into it as winter and the shorter days set in.
I only shoot these bows with a thumb draw. It doesn't make sense to use fingers. When fully drawn the finger pinch is quite pronounced.....and the thumb release is so clean once you get the hang of it.

I did a few hours on this bow yesterday I've got it straight and just about balanced. It has had a long dring time now, which really, really helps!
I will start drawing it now and see how she behaves through the draw.
