62” Zebra longbow with maple limb laminations in the limbs. I threw in a couple pictures taken during the build process. One picture is of the numerous laminations on the benchtop before glue-up. Other photos are of the bow being glued up a various stages on the form. It takes about 30 C-clams with this method. The entire form goes into a home-made oven as the apoxy cures. Black fiberglass on the front and back of the limbs.
