Bending Finished

I lopped about an inch and a quarter off each limb tip and re-did the bends. This shows why it's best to start with a stave at least 2" longer than the desired length.
being shorter and having recurved tips it's a bit stiffer now so I've been thining the limbs some more.
It's flexing a bit and nearly back to brace height. Pulling on a long string on a reflexed bow can give a false idea of the poundage so I need to get it on a short string at brace height soon, but without overstressing it.
