any cracks in blow limbs should not ever be put under pressure, even if you squeeze some glue in to fill the gaps. hang it on the wall as a reminder for next time. as mentioned, you need much thinner strips to make those bends.Well that's a heart breaker. Bummer of a first time bow. I guess I'll start over and perhaps use a different glue this time... there goes $175 dollars + many hours down the drain.
Thanks for your guys replies.
was there really $175 in materials on that glue up? is weldwood the recommended glue type for bow laminations? just curious.
I applaud you for trying this project, it looks interesting.
