All, with my stave coming from Raptor Archery, does it require drying time or is it ready to work?

I would let it sit for a while (week) just to get used to the humidity here.

Got my staves bark side halfway stripped to the white wood tonight. Only had about 30 minutes to work. Looks great this far. Trying to post photos but can't figure out how just yet. Any assistance?

Yes, gizmo.

By slow, was covered well by littleben.

Use bow scale and don't get close to draw weight until the last few inches of intended draw length.
