Before you profile the limbs, fix that hole, bolt em on the riser and string center nock to nock and check if it centers on riser. If off a little, you can move the marks at nocks same amount to center up on riser .

Stay sharp, Kenny.

You could also plug the big hole with a hardwood dowell and smooth on redrill and overlay for looks.

I am progressing slowly on this, as time allows. Thank you all for the advice, it has gotten me to this point. The limbs are profiled per the plans from Bingham's but 11/16" wide tips sure seems large. I am going to stick to the pattern and see what happens, I plan on plenty more bows to play with limbs.

Looks good skeaterbait. That shop is nice to, did you clean it before you took pics?

If I'm breathing, I have nothing to complain about.

11/16" seems huge to me, but you can string her up and look at brace and drawn a bit and see where you want more bend.....

Oh clean shop!! Unlike mine....

Stay sharp, Kenny.

Yeah, I have to clean each time I work in it. Unfortunately that open space is not waiting for me to be able to afford more tools, that's where the Mrs. gets to put her car at night.

Yup... 11/16 is wide... I like just under 1/2"... You got plenty of room to play with... Like Kenny said, See where she is bending and adjust from there... Narrow tips are faster...
