I amazed you got away without bridges or brush nocks to keep the string aligned on the curves, fantastic job Justin.

Thanks Marc, it is loosely based on the bow you made 2 months ago.
Dano, I actually had string groves comming around and meeting on the belly of the bow and a groove comming down the belly of the recurve. After tillering it most of the way I started taking off the extra weight at the tips and took them out with the intention of redoing them.  The string lines up great and no matter how many times I pulled it they stayed right down the center of the recurve so I shot it.  The string still stays centered so I left it that way. Better to be lucky than good.  ;) Justin

Very nice work on those tips Justin. It looked deflexed in the grip, guess it was ;D

Yes Rich about 2 1/2" of deflex in the grip.

  I think I'd still put at least a small bridge, just for that one time when somebody wasn't focusing while stringing it. :-\ I don't think it will take the twist like a glass bow.

It is a tricky little bugger to string, I don't think you can string it without concentrating. Well at least I can't.  :-\ :P Maybe I will go ahead and cut them back in. Justin

You don't post many bows, but when you do...it's a Jim Dandy!  I love short bows, especially short recurves.
 Deadly as i'm sure it is. Dare I use the word "cute" ;D
I love it.
 Well done ;)  Saw Filer
