    Default A bow for me too

    Started this one a few weeks ago. Just coming off the form today. Glued this up with T88 epoxy, it's Ipe and bamboo. Right now it is 70" long (68" ntn) and 1-1/8" wide at the fades, tapering to about 3/8" at the tips. Should come in around 45# @ 30" if I do my part correctly.







    Form is made from two 1x4 and has dowels pushed through so I can use a slit bike inner tube for clamping.



    added a 3/16 maple power lam about 16" long. This will be a bend through the handle design.



    It has about 1-1/2" of reflex glued in. I'll be tillering this later this week, once I get the final shape put into it.
