This is how I would make a template for a longbow delfex reflex type. I would then transfer this template to my bow form material. My question to all of you is this how most bowyers make their experimental forms other than just copying the form from an existing longbow? If this is a standard method of making a template are the numbers I picked 6", 7" and 1" good choices are bad choices in making a relex deflex longbow? If not what numbers would you pick that have been proven to produce a good relex deflex longbow?



Note would it be a good idea to make the 1x8 piece longer than 35 to have more room on the left side for 1/2 of the handle?
