The bottom one is my first attempt. I developed a splinter on upper limb, so I wrapped it and coated with epoxy, and reduced draw weight to just under 30# at 28".
The top bow is actually my third one (#2 exploded!), It's a 70" red oak board that is 42# at 28". I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm looking forward to acquiring my own staves rather than using Home Depot boards.
I tried to post the pics, but I did something wrong! I'll try again.

Those look good. Do you have any full draw and close up views of the handle and tips? I knew you couldn't build just one. Just wait until you get some staves, then you will really get hooked. What kind of trees are you going to start with?
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left
