Very nice bow, good job. Boys need weapons! ;D

It looks like you made it with the nodes facing outwards, if you had the outside on the belly, it probably would have taken less set.
It's a good bow none the less!

I'm sorry but, I'm sum impressed, You can build a bow like that in 2 hours and I have been working on my BL for months and I'm still not sure what I'm doing. Nice Job.

thanks pappy!
i recently was asked to do a bow-making clinic at the local highschool next semester; the mother of one of those 3 boys from the neighbourhood teaches at that school and organized it.
