Looks really nice. You should do a blog on the assembly of these.

Those are awesome! How long have you been building these and how do they or how do you think they will hold up? Reason I ask, this is something my family can all do, shoot that is. Buying five bowe’s is a huge chunk of money. I like the idea of building them.

Very nicely done—I join those above who would like to hear more about your build, especially your design of the cams and how you determined the right eccentricity to use. Thanks for the post.

Thanks all for the comments! I do not really have any type of plans for the bows just went to the shop pulled out my coumound bow and came up with a pattern. Still working on a few things, arrow rest and some sort of sight. Not sure how durable they are yet seeing they are made of pine may not last long for my 4 year
old. The cam system was a little tricky it was more trial and error then anything else. I have been asked to build a few more for friends so I will try to blog it or sketch out some plans!
