Well thanks Dave, on all counts. I’ve built my first “real” bow while I was still in high school, nearly 15 years ago. I’d always been interested in it, and tried but failed many times until finding the Traditional Bowyers Bible – Vol1. After that, I just kept on making. Sold my wheeled contraption and never looked back. Aside from that, I’ve always been artsie and mechanicaly inclined, which doesn’t hurt.

BTW, the bow you have isn’t the one from the video series. We did a still photo build along on this forum way back when it first started. That’s your bow…
