Default Rat bow

Well I messed up a first rat bow by a drilling too many holes so I started a new one so this is the rat bow redo. It is a 17 inch riser out of one and one half inch steel angle iron. The limbs are some old throw away limbs that I had laying around I haven't had a chance to get the draw weight.
It shoots well but I need to build a new string. It's 64" nock to nock.





Well it's near finished but not sure what else I'll do to it. I must say my ears match the rat's
