Nice, solid construction!

It doesn't come clear from the photo, but did you angle the arm rest slightly? I recommend that, because otherwise the fork is not cleanly directed to the pouch hand.

One solution could be to make the fork swivelling, would be very easy the way you have constructed it. Then it would always be perfectly aligned, great for accuracy and safety (no fork hits).

Just bend a U shaped fork and mount it with a single screw, loose enough so it can turn.

As for an arrow rest, why don't you buy some baby bottle brushes and make yourself a whisker biscuit, like I did in this video:


Works great and is very cheap.

You could attach it to the fork with rubber bands.

I see you are using zip ties, may I recommend to replace those with string or (better) thin rubber strips? Zip ties aren't good for the bands.

Also, did you hit your hand? There seems to be a welt above your thumb.

A sight works, but you have to find your standard shooting stance and pouch anchor point. This is the only way to shoot reproducably enough.
