About a year ago I built this TD for a buddy of mine- he's been shooting it non stop since then. I figured it was time to make another one and add it to my collection.  -

I picked up some wood this spring but for the life of me I can't remember what it is- I do know it's not tiger wood.Since I had various pieces left over from other mosaic projects, I rounded them up and will use them in this riser. The riser is 13" long.

Good to see you back again Dave. I was worried you had found and entered a bowyer's rehab, you should know there is no cure for our affliction.
I can't wait to see this one come together it is going to be a real beauty. I have got to get around to trying one of those statics.

Oh and I can relate to not remembering the name of the wood. Seems it is getting harder to remember things all the time.

Dave it's going to be a good looking bow that's for sure

Next thing I need to decide on is the glass and the core- I have black, green, 2 different browns and clear glass to choose from. I got to thinking about the clear and picked this red wood burl veneer to go with the boo core.

That's going to be a sweet looking bow! I'll be keeping an eye on this build along.
