I used the torch on it to remove old paint which caused a joint to break so I'll need to square it up and weld the joints again. So no major problem.

Dang I drilled too many holes and weakened the riser. I'll have to start all over.

Very simple camo, yet creative.

I like the way you blended the riser and limb attachment. I am gluing up some Maple to try and make a riser. I have the plans From Bingham. My plan is to use ILF limbs. A summer project along with a bamboo fly rod.
