The second nock is now done and I've finished the first. You can see the difference...
Where it meets the wood is cleaner and is a better blend in, fewer tool marks showing. 400 grit wet & dry paper and a buffing wheel gives the final finish.

By the way about a week after my last bow exploded on the tiller I took some more moisture measurements on the Yew in may garage and it was all back to a more typical 12%. I'm not going to draw conclusions here, but I shall be wary of tillering bows during long spells of cold dry weather.
