That's stunning! Do you have a guide/book that you followed?

@Defolos Thanks! I actually have a couple old books on primitive bows that I used as a base reference, but a lot of the nuts and bolts information came from reading a few build-alongs on the web. They're scattered about. There are a couple on instructables and youtube, but the most helpful one for me was on a site called Unfortunately that site is down now, so you'll need to use the Wayback Machine on to see it.
