Hey guys! This is my first thread and first bow I’m making I may have left the bamboo too thick and the glue up wasn’t the greatest but I decided to go ahead with forming the bow and maybe filling it in with super glue? I figured I’d shape it and if it comes apart during the tillering process then at least they have the same shape and I can sand the bamboo thinner and reglue it? Any advice would be amazing!

We all have to start somewhere and every bow is a learning adventure.  How thick did you leave the bamboo and did you taper the bamboo?  Welcome to TAS! Looking forward to your postings.

It’s probably a little under 1/8 inch and I just sanded it until it was flat basically but my second glue up didn’t do so well but I heard you have to screw your first bow up really bad in order to be a good bowyer lol

In theory you can begin tillering after shaping your limbs. Work the limbs in slowly. Its a thick back. But you should still be alright. Just go slow.

What wood did you glue your bamboo to, what is your belly wood
