Still thinking about my victim, er, recipient. Not quite sure what to build. Guess I'll have to go trolling to see what pops up.

Got mine on the go.

I'm just going to build the best I can based on what I've done so far. Something I'd be happy with, and hope it doesn't disappoint.

I've got a start, but it'll be a lil while before I can finish. It all depends on how my eye heals up and when the doctor old me to lift more than a couple pounds. I've been okayed to move around and go for walks, though that doesn't work with a broken ankle. But I'm guessing it'll be a month or so until I can. But then I'll have another surgery and that'll reset for a bit.

But I've got the persimmon bow shaped out and almost floor tillered. I'm thinking about going a more primal knock design with the tips tapered and a bundle of thread built up to hold the string. And I might file a slight groove about the thread for a little assistance. The string design will be an idea I got from a warbow forum. One loop is a rat tail to adjustability and self tightening. The other will have a small loop where the string passes through itself to form another self tightening loop before the rat tail is hooked on. This makes for a string that tightens down and needs almost no knock to hold it in place but is still easily loosened on lighter bows. I tried ot on the last warbow attempt that was 100# at 25" when it went and it was easily loosened. I can shift gongs if there are any objections to these plans. I figured id might as well show a couple different ways of doing things to spread some ideas.

Had a set back on mine. While sanding my hickory backing strip to final thickness at a friends, his sandpaper on the roll left go and pretty much destroyed my backing strip. Need to start over on the backing strip. I thought I'd be tillering mine by now.

Finally got a new backing strip cut and prepped, and glued the bow up today. Hope to get it unclamped and cleaned up tomorrow. Will try to get a pic up when I get that far.

Worked a little bit this weekend. I am working on a new form for a recurve. I built the original form for my first recurve last summer and decided to tweak it a little bit before I make another. I guess I am using my victim as a "guinea pig". I am going to have to just guess on stack thickness for making weight.

I was also thinking it might be a good idea to say if we shoot 3 under or split. I don't think that was in the original sign up. If my guy sees this, I shoot 3 under.
