So how do you know when pulling a bow past a certain point is likely  
to be unsafe? This seems like it would be difficult to do, since  
overdrawing it might result in irreversible catastrophic failure.

This is one of the things that has kept me from trying to carve my own  
bow. Hours and hours of effort, only to have it break in one of it's  
early pulls.
