So I did something new, instead of ordering materials, I ask the supplier to go ahead and glue it up for me. A bow blank that I will finish, should make it quicker. So Friday afternoon it arrived, here is how it looked.

    Now to make the square block look like a riser. I’m using simple hand tools in this..

    Pictures seem to post from last to first, but that was riser overlays.
    Then I began filing by hand..

    I know this bow is not going to be an eye catcher. I didn’t know how I would like his design so I ask him to glue one up using the cheapest material he had. Brown glass and Maple wood.
    Then I compared it to my last design and build, I should like it, mighty close!
