I have recently started getting into the traditional bow making art and have gotten a hold of a osage orange limb about 2-3 inches in diameter.
I have got the bow shaved down to the heart wood on both limbs and gradually shaved up to the ends of the handle area. There is a slight difficulty I have encountered with the tillering process. The limbs are somewhat the same in diameter on both sides but there is a bend about six inches from the handle area on both limbs so the rest of the limbs further up the belly are not bending as they should.I was wondering if I should shave the rest of the limbs on the belly side so the bend with the lower bend or if I should shave the sides of the bow down? Anyways I was looking at your website and I thought you might be able to help.
