Thanks everyone. I joined a couple of months ago and I am in awe of the craftmanship on here.

I got the plans off of the Internet a couple of years ago and this is my second set.

You can’t see it in the picture, but the arms are 3 pieces 1/2” thick and just glued and clamped on a jig to get the bow.
