It really looks nice. Have you been able to shoot it yet.
I've got some questions if you don't mind.
1 What band saw blade as far as width and TPI do you use when cutting the riser curves with your radius cutting jig.
2 Do you do any sanding to remove blade teeth marks after the cut or if there aren't any obvious bumps or dips is it good to glue up as is.
3 What blade would you recommend if cutting a tighter 6" radius.

Thanks, Royce.

Hi Royce,
I run a 3 or 4 tpi x 1/2Ē blade for lams and cut the radius with it too
I do sand off the saw marks but have clamped the risers and not sure Iíd have to.

For a 6Ē radius, you would have to go less than 1/2Ē , donít know if 3/8 would do it but Iím sure 1/4 would

Stay sharp, Kenny.

I notices you cut your string nocks before you glue on the tip overlays. Is there any particular advantage to this method?
