Today I skinned the snake that someone left in my freezer. It's long enough for a full length bow.

I also worked on cleaning up the rings around a small knot.

No. The knots are in the working portion of the limbs. It will be a long shot on making it to a functioning bow. The heart shaped knot trails down the limb at the bottom. Almost the entire working portion of that limb will be split in half.

I can see sinew wraps in your future, Clint. Looking forward to seeing this one shooting.
If you ain't found a home for that skin, I might know where one is. [bigsmyl]

I didn't take it to the Classic. I figured hole in the bow Chuck would talk me out of it.

Worked on the layout of the riser for the RD build. It's fitted to the form and base lams and needs to be sawed and ground for the ramps and the fades feathered.

Solid Acer saccharum. There's a bit of figure in there but not much. This bow is all basic and economical materials to create a baseline bow.

My SWAG is 45# @ 28"
