Another red oak bow. This one is 69" n/n, 45lbs @ 27" draw with 1 1/4" set on bottom limb and 1 1/2 " set top limb. Except for the quarter inch difference in limb set, I am very happy with this bow.

Uneven set is very common. I definitely would not consider that a drawback. It looks really nice. What kind of stain did you use?

Haven't stained it yet. Been using blo and true oil. Going to cover the blo and true oil with urethane on this one.

@walter - Nice job as usual.  How many bows is that you've made so far?

@ghost0311-8541 - I like the video.  It's very interesting to see all the different tools and techniques people use when bow making.

Third bow. I have #4's profile cut and the belly planed and rasped down enough to begin floor tillering. It is a quarter inch wider fades to mid limb and a few inches shorter. Hoping for 45lb less than an inch set.
