New bow!

Tried making another 180 cm and removing wood from the back to give it a square cross section. But end up removing too much wood and it had a weak draw and short range. So I converted it into an inuit inspired cable backed bow.

Took some store rope, and braided three strands of it together, making a thicker rope whose ends I tied together. Then made another one. Then I cut the nooks bigger, placed each circle of rope around each end and bound some rope around the circles to make a noose. Then wrapped the entire limb in rope, put a divider between the string at the handle, inserted two sticks for twisting the rope and boom.

Instantly tripled its power! Still not as powerful had I not tillered it too much but very cool. Wonder how else I can increase its power? The rope can hardly be twisted more but perhaps adding more rope would help?

New full draw double bow.

Also removed wood from the back on this one but I exposed only two "lines".
Tested it against my earlier double bow from last summer and was surprised to find that they were pretty similar in performance. Testing the previous bow last year gave me the impression that it was very slow. Plus, had honestly thought that I had outdone myself with this new one. But it is still great.
