Looks like an excellent fix , I like the canary wood contrast. Next time, to save a lot of work, you could tape the entire handle with painters tape then cut out the slots before gluing the lams.

--------------------
The broadhead used, regardless of how sharp, is nowhere as important as being able to place it in the correct spot.

I've come to believe that the keys to shooting well for me are good form, trusting the bow to do all the work, and having the confidence in the bow and myself to remain motionless and relaxed at release until the arrow hits the mark.

And who said it couldn't be done. Kenny is a great guy to deal with. Lot's of help. Look forward to seeing the finished repair. Good job.

Neat idea for sure. I think it will make many of us interested in less than perfect bows if such a repair can be made this good. Can't wait to hear how it turns out and how the bow shoots!

I'm gonna try to get back on this project in the next week or so.

Should have more pics when I do. Sorry I'm taking so long.
