The last pic is the bow just unbraced. Forgot to mention that I also trapped the back and will heat treat after I get it fully shot in.

Finished shooting it in this am. Look, draw and release. Arrows all hitting close together at about 10 yards. Got a dozen youth arrows from 3 rivers. Love them.

Thanks! I have never shot a bow like this one. A four inch brace height and no (zero) hand shock . Not even any noticeable string vibration. I really just pointed, drew and released. Arrows found their target like heat seeking missles  Grin
Now, I have to make a 45lb bow behave like a 20 pounder. May take a long while and cause a lumber shortage Cheesy
