And I had a fellow call about putting curved radius in risers, so I set my el cheapo swing jig on my bandsaw and figured while I was taking pics for him, I'd just cut the back and accent cut for the riser. Found a chunk of bocote with some sapwood on a corner, which would cut off...

 -

It's set on 26" which I figured out before I cut it, it needs 27" radius for the 62/64" bow...

 -

 -

Set the block out far enough to hit the line you want, cut the back profile first, then the accent cut...


 -

 -

Here she is all cut out, back profile, accent cut(simple curved accent, probably put a pc of curly something with maybe something black in there...

 -

That's all folks til next weekend most likely.....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

It's hard to make a wooden bow which isn't beautiful, even if it's ugly.

Awesome! I ordered your plans several years ago, got the form built and just never got around to ordering supplies to get started. Looking forward to this build a long.

I will be watching

I take the outside of curve to disc sander and just lightly clean up any zigs or zags , then spindle sander to inside curve and do the same, then clamp together and check the glue line, just like a dry run on a bow. Then adjust the inside curve because the disc sander on the outside curve is rarely out of line. Rarely have to do much more than that.

Will not sand the back profile til I'm ready to finish the riser up for bow glueup.

Stay sharp, Kenny.

I gotta get a pc of metal strap to make the straps to bolt it together with the bow and air hose in between.

I could rob em off another form, but don't want to....

I like the air system because the entire bow has the exact same pressure as it cures.

Stay sharp, Kenny.
