It is a sweet bow, nice lines. I really enjoy making them!
So, I am going to get some butcher paper, and trace our Max 'outline' to send to you, so, if you wish, Archer, send me a message with your snail mail addy.
I will also send along the outlines of the lockplates. I designed them as close as possible to what I could see on at least one of the photos of the original maximilian bows. Some lockplates on this bow (three 'classic' ones that I know of) are also more 'plain', but, I like this design. You are welcome to use, or not, as it pleases you.
I'll drop some notes on how "we' do it, and again, use or do not! We are not the be-all and end-all of this bow's design.
As a matter of fact, there is one set of photos of this bow, one of the three, that shows that there is a line along the sides of the bow, and that the upper half (lengthwise)of the stock is rather flat, but the lower half sort of slants in. I tried that on one of the bows, but the time it took me, did not return for me, anyways, much in the way of a better look. But, I want to try it again. In my copious spare time...
