A 5-6" recurve would be nice.
Bolsters aren't needed on a user imo,especially with the woods you use,but I can understand you wanting to do them.I've thought about trying to put some on a handle project,but I don't think I can pull it off with the limited tools I have to work with.They do provide some nice contrast,as do micarta pins.
I'd say with your creative talents what ever you do will sell,so mix it up man.

It's better to have it & not need it than to need it & not have it! (a gun that is)
May the forest be with you.
