I became a member on this forum very recently and I'm in the research stage of building a reflex-deflex bow which I believe is the same type as the one you built.
Since I'm in Sri Lanka and do not have much of a culture of bow making I have been researching a lot to find info on bow building as well as properties of wood for limbs to find native woods which would fit the bill.
So I looked in many sites and went through so many build-along’s and your build along was by far the BEST by a country mile. I'm so glad that you decided to share ur knowledge with us I learned plenty and I have ready and seen every part of this thread and I find it hard believe this is just ur 2nd bow cos the only way to call this bow and this project is a... .........A MASTERPIESE........
Thank you very much and I hope I will be able to build a bow 1/10 as glorious as yours. Your son is one lucky guy and ur one hell of a father Great work and your attention to detail and craftsmanship is simply awesome..
WOW, great job RGK. I did a little build-a-long a few weeks ago on a longbow that I built but must say I'm slightly embarrassed after seeing this one. Great photo's and very informative. Your leather grip is outstanding. You've given me some ideas to try on my next bow.
