That's really cool and impressive. I've been thinking about getting into archery and was only this morning looking at ordering a Bear super grizzly recurve, but I got a bit lost with all the addons I would need.

Wonderful! Any full view pics of the finished bow?
Begin. To begin is half the work, let half still remain; again begin this, and thou wilt have finished. -Marcus Aurelius Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow.-Plato This is gonna sound weird, but for a second, I think you took on the shape of a unicorn.-Dale Doback
They are self knocked. Normally I do a Hardwood insert or wrapping to reinforce the knock. But she already told me that she would never fly the arrows. So I did paint instead. They are hickory shafts, so I'd be suprised if they needed much reinforcement.
I use two hack saw blades taped together to get the initial shape, but it still comes down to a ton of filing.
Welcome :) Doing a bow is hard, even if for some is just bending a branch and going for it. And from that image I can see you know your art (doing a bow requires knowledge and requires artist eyes). Very nice. You make your shelf flat or a bit roundish? I couldn't see it from the pics
Katsu: Hey Merch! Just wanted you to see this

nerdthenord: Lol, well that’s on them

RufusScorpius: Not so good. Had a big argument with my housemates. They said the place was haunted, I said I've lived there 183 years and never saw a ghost.

nerdthenord: Also, how you doing Scorp? Doing ok myself.

nerdthenord: It's pretty cool that water can be neutral, an acid, or a base without changing any of it's physical properties, but instead the theoretical definition of acidity used.
Sept 8, 2023 13:31:43 GMT
nerdthenord: I do love that when you talk about acids and based with a chemist though you have to specify what theory and definition of acids you are using. It's very easy to teach and understand the PH Scale, but it's not nearly as simple in real life

nerdthenord: True, it can't be completely dismissed in extreme conditions. I personally doubt it would be "Normal" matter, with protons, neutrons, and electrons though. Might be exotic matter like quark matter. Big disclaimer, I am not a theoretical Chemist either.

RufusScorpius: I wonder if there's another planet where their swords are made from Unseptbium and the hobbyists there are arguing about the properties of it's various alloys?

RufusScorpius: the existence of elements beyond the 7th period can't be dismissed. Like the theory of proton decay, we don't have the technology to devise an experiment to confirm or deny it. Esoteric elements MAY exist around neutron stars, magnetars, and etc.

AndiTheBarvarian: Nuclear physicists are the nuclear constituents' accessories to deliberate about themselves!

nerdthenord: There’s a reason I’m not a nuclear physicist lol

treeslicer: No, it's because proton charge repulsion overwhelms the strong nuclear force due to the increasing nuclear diameter. The nucleus is too fat rather than too heavy.

nerdthenord: I don't believe in the hypothetical 8th period of the periodic table myself, at least in regards to normal matter. Oganesson, Element 118, probably filled the table. Beyond that, it's just too heavy to be stable.
