From a nice grained board of lemonwood, this bendy handle bow with mild recurves and horn nocks. 65" x 1"1/8, 43 lbs @ 28". Sweet shooter.

OMG! 27 hours after posting, only 23 views and not one comment. I miss the bowmakers' bar of 2007...

Beautifully executed.  One of my favorite styles. ELB being the other.

Beautiful bow. Quite round in the handle. How's the hand shock? 

From The Bowmakers Bar.

Hey Tim! Thanks. The handshock is not bad at all as long as the arrows are 9+ gpp, it's typically part of the pleasure shooting these bows. They are smooth to draw and alive. The owner is pleased with the cast.
If you have the new address of the bowmakers bar, first rounds are on me ;)

Thanks! It is a kind of condensate LB, trading some length for recurves.
