I have built my own bows for many years now, but now with health issues like last year, I am having the most of it done, I will finish it.
    The start is unique, it a resin riser, an Ibeam will be added for strength.
    Part of these are on another post.

    Here it is on tan and black pieces of phenolic, I chose the tan, the bolt inserts will be mounted in the phenolic, very strong material.
