Takedown Riser Template/Plans
I am longtime compound bow hunter and shooter and have recently taken an interest in traditional archery. Does anyone know where I can find plans or a template for making a riser to fit pre-made limbs (hoyt,samick, etc). I am proficient at woodworking but don't know the angles and length required to make one or are they all so different this is not possoble. Thanks for looking and I would appreciate any advice.

Are you talking ILF limbs or bolt downs? These guys will help you no matter which kind.

I am a new user and very new to archery. My girlfriend's kids got me backed hooked. I used to do it when I was a kid in my grandpa's garage. Since they saw hunger games, they can't get enough of the bow and arrows. I build two PVC bows and also started making my own strings. I am a very good furniture maker and have made two wooden sea kayaks. I want to do a wooden bow (composite laminations) but, cannot find any plans for a takedown recurve riser. The image provided in this thread does not include measurements. Would it be possible to provide them?

Thanks for all the help in advance.
