Picture of Takedown Bow With Fiberglass Limbs

last year i started to make this bow. riser was made with unknown types of wood. limbs were made with fiberglass and maple. this is my first takedown bow, maybe i will do another after days.

Step 1: Make the Riser

Draw it on the paper. And then stick the wood blocks i'm not very sure the types of wood. use band saw for the first shape. and then use sand paper, drums, different files...

Step 2: Make the Limbs

we should make a mold for the curve of limbs. i use 2 slices of fiberglass and 2 slices of maple. measure is 1700mm*50mm*1.2mm.

Step 3: Finish Job
