Very nice, a lot better than my first bows. Don't sweat the weight you'll get the hang of it. You are already way ahead of fellas that don't ever build one. Addictive, eh?

Nice bow.  Especially for a first bow.  Wish my first was that good!  I'd really like to try mullberry. 
Talking trees. What do trees have to talk about, hmm... except the consistency of squirrel droppings?

The shape looks like a good start for your first self bow. Gotta see it bow now.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Man! I want to try mulberry. That thing came out better than my first. Mine was like 5 lbs. I had a huge learning curve from my first to third. Maybe you could give me some of that mulberry ;)

The tips are buffalo horn. I named this bow the Mullberry Nippler

Nice first bow! Welcome to the addiction! >:D
"The bow is the old first lyre,
the mono chord, the initial rune of fine art
The humanities grew out from archery as a flower from a seed
No sooner did the soft, sweet note of the bow-string charm the ear of genius than music was born, and from music came poetry and painting and..." Maurice Thompso
