Inspired by one of the stunning designs Master Bill Hays :bowdown:  , had long wanted to make a Spanish style with a board, I used Oak and Ash, not finished, always need to do a few rounds of shooting to feel your comfort and see how it works, for me is one of the best designs that exist.
 
Cheers ...... Alf

Very well done, masterly created! I am beginning to like these asymmetrical designs more and more. It means more folks are available. Of course the Spanish method of band attachment was always a favorite of mine.

Will the target sight adversely affect the bandlife?
