Heya, thanks for the replies.
Started the Hickory recurve, glued on a handle riser and nocking points, however, felt like making another bow from a quarter log, I like that better, the hickory one is for a little later.
It's gonna be an ash flatbow style 2" from mid limb to mid limb then tapering to about 1/2" on the nocks, going to use horn nocks, I think I'm confident enough at the moment for this one that I'm not gonna break it to get the extra work on the nocks done. stiff handle section about 8" including the tapers to the limbs, tips stiff 8". I *think* that's a reasonable build for the profile I'm going for. also upper limb 1 1/2" longer for assymetrical center.
Aiming for max 50# (can't test anything stronger than this anyway where I'm living, I found out recently) 40# or 45# I'm also glad. it's about 74,5" total length, nock to nock, no idea yet, and upon completion with the horn nocks, also no idea yet.
It's from the same log as the bow built previously in this thread, so I think it should definately work as a flatbow. At first I was a little concerned about the 'high crown', I suspect it to be about 1/2" high at the 2" width. however, it's quite long and I read decrowning is not needed in that case. So I think it's going to be fine.
some pics of very rough stage:

upper limb not fully roughed out yet, note the shaky profile, I tried following the grain (Followed the information on your website Dark_Factor) I'm still in the phase now of thinking how this will work out. the bend in the bow however should provide that the arrow will rest more centered if you know what I mean, and thus gives less archers paradox. I don't know if that's the right thing to do, however that's what I thougth was right. Still got some breathing room in width dimension to adjust and whatnot.
