| | Re: What length do you make your spikes?
LOL I do the opposite way. If I want my stacked bow a 5" stacked bow I'll cut the spikes about 5 3/4" so after stacking and trimming it'll be 5". I make the top and bottom bow a bit smaller so the spikes will show. In my opinion the spikes decide the size of the stacked bow, not the bows themself. For example if you make 5" bows then you stack them together with the surrounding loops and spikes in the middle and of course you want those layer to show, you'll end up with 6" stacked bow.
