I would rather fail trying to do something above my means, Than to succeed at something beneath my means.

I like it!

Upper limb is a tad stiff in the middle/outer, but I can see why you've left it that way 'cos of the big knot.
Nice work.

OK, Bottom limb is just a little weak, just a tad but will get weaker over time, they almost always do. Top limb is bending a little too much in the fade and not quite enough from mid-limb out. If you correct the top limb tiller your bottom limb will be just right.

Overall you did an exceptional job, sure am glad there are no pictures of my first bow floating around, my reputation of being an accomplished bow maker would be out the window if anyone saw my first.
