The dark coloured one is a hardwood laminate that has been laminated with Tufnol.

The other is a mahogany frame laminated with honey coloured micarta, and a palm swell made from bog oak and yew. This is very similar to the bamboo ergos, but the forks and palm swell have been altered to fit my hand more securely.

Thanks for looking.

Both are breathtaking; mouthwatering. It's good to see you getting into your stride, because you'll soon be making so many that you'll be ready to trade with or sell to us!

The theraband arrived this morning, so I finished these two up and spent an hour shooting in the garden.

Both are beauties. How's that Blue Thera-band?
I am very pleased with the blue theraband and surprised at how fast it shoots.

I cut it to 22cm then cut it down the centre and folded it, I will try some tapered band-sets with the next one.

Martin, think the blue theraband is strong enough for hunting?

After trying it out yesterday I would say yes, I was shooting at one of those foam deer archers use and the 12.5 mm steel ball were penatrating.
Not just under the surface but a good 3 to 4 inches, and this stuff is real tough high density foam.
