Hey guys,
Been some time since I have posted anything. Been so busy with life and starting college it has been a crazy year so far.

Started this bow two days ago and figure that it will be the one I hunt with this fall. Most of my bows have been pretty tedious with all the inlays and accents that this time I wanted simple yet elegant.

This one has black glass on the back and belly with a G10 riser. I have always wanted to try a G10 riser so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Hoping for 55# @ 28 inch draw when completed.

Here is where I am at so far...

Got the limbs roughly profiled and the nocks cut in.

Tomorrow I will add the overlays. I am unsure what I am going to use for the riser but will do a black horn for the nocks.

Any comments or opinions are welcome! Nice to be back building again!

Looks great so far! It'll be neat to hear how the G10 works out.

I know it's nice to have fancy veneers under clear glass and risers made of multiple woods with mosaic strips, but those simple black/colored glass limbs with solid one piece risers are great lookers, too.

Good stuff. Let me guess that car in the background is a 61-62 Oldsmobile or maybe Cadillac..?

Today I got the tips roughed out and looking nice. I will start trying to drop the weight in the next couple of days and then start with the shaping of the riser.
