First stringing today. I got a long way to go to find a bow in it but am liking it so far.

Nice, what are the white spots on the handle? They look nice.

Just me, but I'd put the marking for top and bottom limb in a more discreet place [laughing]
J/K. Looks great so far!!!
What is the darker wood in the riser and limbs?

Well I thought about painting one orange so they didn't get put on wrong but I was afraid I'd forget which one it was. Lol
Those will get removed at some point. The dark wood is macasser ebony. I have used it in limbs before but this piece turned out darker than I was hoping for. I wanted a dark colored bow for ground blind hunting. Got a lot of work to be done need to start working on shaping the riser

Got the riser roughed out pretty much where I want it. Fitted the limbs to it just need to put tips on them.
