    wow, tripplepost?<br><br>i like the shape and the woodstructure, but i´m always afraid, that the tip of the arrow might catch the frame if you pull it out to the max.

    Looks funky. Probably one of the most "artful" pieces you have done. <br>

    I just rediscovered this video. I'm planning on getting a band saw and a more powerful dremel soon and I'm going to try to make one of these. I already have a vertical belt sander. <br><br>I think I understand why there are no drawn out plans posted for this, because it has so many curves and it's one piece cut out of solid wood board, with the grain running parallel to the direction you're shooting. Reminds me of the old wooden baseball bats we used as kids before the advent of aluminum bats. I'll just have to guess-timate the dimensions based on the video. I think it's a brilliant design.

    It is actually made from three layers of Multiplex (plywood), laminated together to form one big block.
