Hazel Bow Pics

The Hazel bow is about 36 pounds at 28", I've pulled it back to 29". The lower limb is a bit weak, with hindsight I should have made it the other way up with the narrower limb at the top. The top limb is a tad longer and thus less stressed, but basically I just rushed the whole thing, got a tad cocky and cut it too close on the bandsaw and it came out too narrow.
Ok it shoots, and as a light bow it's ok, but not really the standard I expect of myself, although considering the cost of the stave (£0.00) it's worth every penny.
