Default DIY take down

Ok I was hesitant in posting this. But here goes. I picked up a Diamondback venom longbow 58 inch. 46 lb. Pretty good shooter. Well long story short Iíve always wanted a two piece. So here goes. The bow was $180 , $6 in hardware, still need to get inner tube for roll up grip. Couple days of shooting. Playing with different spine & weight. Shooting good & quiet

Nicely done! Did you make the separating cut on a bandsaw? is the void caused by cutting filled back in, and if so, with what?
Please do report back if the riser fails over time. Thanks for posting.

Looks kinda good sums it up lol. I did the cuts with a bimetal saw zall blade by hand. The gap at the bottom is blade width. Iím gonna fill that with metal. Prob with a sawzall blade ground down to fit profile of grip. Shoot good
