Pretty bow Ben.

Still liking this design I see.

Very cool with the shedua!

I've been playing around figuring out a way to easily add a little arc to the riser area. Hard for me to keep the area just a few inches outta the fades from cracking....gotta tiller it perfect which is something I'm struggling with...lol

Always enjoy seeing your tri lams!

What is the "wood database"?

Great looking bow. Love the way it bends and the wood combination.

John, this is the one I was building while you were building yours. Since this I've moved to a similar design but with some deflex out of the riser which seems to help the problem you're talking about. I just today shipped the latest one of the new R/D design to Fujimo so when it lands hopefully he'll post some pics and you can see it.

Mike, wood database is www.wooddatabase.com IIRC and it has some basic mechanical specs on a whole bunch of woods ... Nearly every wood I can think of is listed. And it lists modulus (stiffness) and maximum strength (maximum stress at failure) and basically stress @ failure divided by stiffness is a measure of elasticity, it's not listed but you can calculate it. If you want more details or wanna talk a particular wood shoot me an e-mail.

Thanks for the kind words. It's got a slight whip tiller, or more accurately it's bending most at mid limb, but it's also left extra wide out past mid limb as I mentioned.
