This elm bow is beautiful!
2 quick questions:
I am assuming the numbers are metric dimensions, but what is the “/” with 2 numbers, just confirming that is upper-limb/lower limb?
Would you mind sharing how you do the lnlayed strike plate? They are very well done. Is the area burned with a stamp before filling with material?
Thanks very much.
Yes, the numbers are metric (mm). First number is width, followed by depth.
Not upper/lower limb.
I did some editing to make it more clear 🙂
