the form assembly
This photo from the bow shows all the forms assembled and aligned just prior to starting the build. Just below the first and last forms you can see an inverted T extension on each. At various times throughout the build, I will clip a wide straight edge to both Ts to sight down ensure that all forms and the 2 stringlines between these 2 outside forms does not twist. (or if it does, whether or not it is serious enough that I will have the courage to do something about!). You can also see the 2 stringlines at each end tie off down at the strongback.
