    Larry,

    The walnut is not bent. I cut the profile using a scroll saw, same for all the bow pieces as well. I did not think to take a picture at the time.

    Cool beans on the ribbons and I agree that's the prettiest piece of poplar I think I've ever seen.

    Truly excellent work! I take it you steam-bent the bow?

    Now that it's finished, how many ribbons will it hold?
    Cheers,
