Found an aluminum riser template for a wave riser a good bud gave me, and decided to build myself a bow with it.

Here are some pics to start this show, will try to take more as I build the bow.

 -

And with a junk set of limbs to see how profile will be...

 -

There is the other part of the template to mark the wave to the left of bow.....

I'm liking the looks of it so far.

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Just hope you fixed those gaps before you glued the riser together! [biglaugh]

The one I glued up fit great with no extra sanding. The other one might be better if I slid it a little so the ends are even.


I looked at my edge sander a bit for a profile sander tonite. Got an idea or 2 goin....

I guess I'll have to build 2 [Frown] , hate to throw away the other riser.... [biglaugh]

The spare limbs are junk, they are where I learned to not crank the hold downs on the side of form tight against the bow limbs...... [Razz]
