Today I made a 4 piece take down. Never liked that bow from the start. I attribute it to operator error... But I learned a bit....

I figured out how to post photo images in the TradGang forum messages. Now I am ready to ask questions with illustrations.
 -
Any way it was a stumbling block for me but I did "get it" after a few failed attempts.
I went back to the Photography and Video forum and wrote up a step by step description of how photo images are posted from "SmugMug.com". I hope that this will make it easier for other new members to share their images.

Dang Roy, that stinks.
Most people wait for a bow to fail then cut it up. But I don't see any break lines, those all look like clean cuts. What gives?

Didn't care for the tiller and it wasn't getting any better. Bottom limb seemed to be getting weaker all the time..

I gave it 20 scrapes on the lower limb (left) and 10 on the right. There's also a slight stiff spot just short of midlimb that I scraped 10 times also.

I think it's just shadows but the lighting isn't that great.

20 Scrapes outer third on lower limb, 10 scrapes outer third on upper. I do a faceted scrape a la Dean Torges. Slight angle on each side and then scrape the ridge.

20 Bends.

Hickory Selfbow Tilleralong - 5

I think the focus is going in and out because of me moving into and out of the frame. I'll work on that.

I will see about more light. I was not at MOJam last year. It's been 10+ years since I attended. I need to get back there.
