Just finished a new laminated horsebow. It has black glass back and belly with tempered bamboo laminations in the limbs. The riser is quilted maple and the syhas (ends) are quilted maple with a purpleheart spine laminated between. I used a two stage dye to make the grain pop. Riser is cut either for a left handed shooter or shooting with a thumb ring.
Been working on this model for over a year and when through A LOT of different forms until I finally got the bugs worked out. Hey that’s half the fun right! She is FAST! Probably the fastest bow I have ever made.
