Made this 3 piece for Ryan Martin (CRM95)
Claro walnut and figured maple riser, Birdseye maple on back, walnut burl on belly, moose antler overlays on riser and limb butts, and deer antler on tips from a buck that Ryan's dad shot. 64" bow and 49#@29". Shelf is cut 3/16" past center.
Hope he likes it!

I like to go 1/4" past.
It's more work and wider riser.

Really nice, good job.

I really like the style and line of your riser nice and lean. Very good work beautiful looking bow.

That looks sharp Randy! I have firsthand experience with your bows and I gotta say they shoot as slick as they look. Fantastic job man! Can't wait to get mine back too [pray] [archer]

Hot, Sharp and Sexy Bow... I hate to be the bummer guy but your accents are ending at a very high stress point in the riser...

Yes sir, that's one reason I back the riser with a piece of 1/16" g10. That gives a little piece of mind... just a little! Lol
I won't do that accent in a bow over 55# at any given length just to be on the safe side.
I did a mock up riser just like it with some old walnut I had laying around and I hung it from a rafter by the throat of the grip and I was able to hang my whole body weight from it, (225#) . I even did a pull up!! Just 1! [laughing]
