5 curve tri-lam
« on: May 19, 2019, 02:52:04 pm »
Hi friends,

This was a new venture for me. The design idea kinda just popped into my head and wouldn't go away until I attempted to bring it to life.  (W

I harvested and prepared all the wood, which took time but was worth it IMO. It's ash, cherry, and osage. Once I had all 3 lams tapered and sanded I used dry heat to shape all 3 on a caul. Then I applied the epoxy, wrapped with inner tubes and clamped it back onto the caul. From there it was just careful tillering.

My goal was for the set-back handle to give just a bit at full draw and for the rest of the bow to share the work evenly.

Thank you to all who commented when I asked for input on the tiller a few weeks back. The full draw pic was taken shortly thereafter.  :)

I really like that shape.  Great job on a complicated bow build.

Thanks Leon. It shoots very nicely for such a short bow. I clocked her at 165 fps.

Thanks Erika.  :)
