It's always nice when a plan comes together and everything works out like it is suppose to!

Congrats on your first string build!

Is the board marked for bow length or actual string length?
Thanks, Mike

Correction, I forgot to mention that, if memory serves me right, the board is correct for longbows but you need to go one inch shorter for recurves.

For the benefit of me (and maybe others) can you also post your pic and any instructions here old sailor or post a link to the other thread? Makes it easier when searching stuff like this for reference.

Thanks.

I built one without plans two years ago, looks like I missed this thread. Would have saved me a lot of trouble!
