That sounds like a definite labor of love. That would be awesome to shoot a deer with a bow that you made.The riser took. Few days as I got the time. Limbs are about a weekend. This bow was about 2 weeks.
Once I select the woods for the riser, I put them in my curing oven wrapped in plastic for about 24 hrs at 100 degrees. My shop is not humidity controlled, so this gets it down to about 8%.
Then I cut the woods on my bandsaw, surface every thing to square and glue it up with epoxy. It cures at 165 for 4 hours.
Wood for the limbs gets cut to rough size and then ran through a thickness sander to profile.
Limbs are layered up in a form then cured for 4 hours at 165.
Riser gets machined on my mill for the limb pads and limbs get cut and sanded to shape. Riser gets cut out on bandsaw and shaped with a spindle sander.
Tiller on the tree to get limbs to where I want them. Shoot a bit to make sure the riser window is right and then clear coat it.
Lot of sanding! I usually have a few I am working on while one is curing etc.
