    Thank you for reply . My first longbow is broken . All went well until I try to put on a shorter string . I press to much on the floor . I am making a new one now. This time is easiest and making better measure so both sides are equal now . The length is 184 cm the thicker part (looking sideways) near the handle 2 cm and the thin at the edge is 1 cm . It is 4 cm wide at the handle and one cm wide at the edge . I let you know when is done . Thank you again for your kind reply . If I brake it again Ill let you know .
