    Seen his work before, but some of these are new to me, and just astounding. I would gladly add one to my collection, but fear that I'd have to sell my soul to do so. But that lion head, wow....Want!

    Ivo, On Excalibur forum they must be mad. It would take such a vast amount of time to program a CNC machine to carve that kind of detail. If these bows are one offs it would be just as expensive as the master woodcarver with mad skills who carved these stocks.

    No kidding, I run a CNC machine (several actually) and they are great for carving into a flat surface (for inlay etc) but THAT work would be impossible to achieve with any CNC router/cutter I've ever seen. Absolutely gorgeous!

    Dmitriy Krohalev is indeed kicking ass when it comes to stocks, but again being a student of the Legendary Master Pyankov it's no surprise. Smile I think I know a Russian guy who lives in St. Petersburg and knows Dmitriy...I'll see if he accepts my invite...wouldn't that be amazing? king

    And...

    It looks like we finally assembling our little band of CAD/CAM'ers, please welcome yours truly to the club. Crossbows by Dmitriy Krohalev 207946 I just couldn't resist....For about a year now I've been working as a CAD/CAM designer at a dental laboratory designing and milling zirconia framework for dental restorations(crowns, bridges, etc.)...perhaps now I finally have someone to talk to about what's out there...cad/cam wise. cheers

    That work looks Hand carved I can't beleive they think it is machined. My friend Sigmundr carves releif that well. Usualy Religious iconography in softwood or in the ursines style in ivory.
    If I ever get good enough at bow making to make it worth while I will beg him to carve the Ivory inlay.
    But the 3D carving is awesome the Lions head is exactly like the ones I
    have access too look at on a 17C Savana Roller chair, But the carver who executed those heads would have carved Lion heads every day while Mr Krohalev carves A great variety of unique pieces.
    If I was into Modern bows at all !
