    How do I tune this  20210724_1802586935812248527618153
    I have finally finished my medieval style build, except for a string and some bolts.  I had to make the bolt rest from bone as my antler stock is all too thin. Anyway, the rest is a good tight fit in its slot but needs refining.   Do I glue it down, tune the bow then shape it, or shape it, tune the bow and glue it down?  Please can you advise on the best way to proceed
