You are absolutely correct. It took me hours to get the whole length to one layer. Used my Buck Vantage Pro pocket knife to do it. Probably about 6 hours into just that portion of it. As you can see one limb has a decent back set to it but the other is straight. I am considering steaming the straight limb to impart a similar back set as the other limb. Picked up a package of sinew and am probably going to back the bow with sinew fibers as insurance for cracks. The thin layers have me a bit concerned. Thanks for the link.
