Default Yew selfbow pictures

A lot of folks have asked so here are pics. 42# @ 27.5" Yew billets glued up. The bow is backed in beef rawhide.

Wish you had a feather up your butt and I had that bow, we'd both be tickled

Sweet bow - love the fact you have a finger sling on

Very cool Jimmy. It was nice to see it going from the shed at Twin Oaks to it's first kill.

Thanks guys. I am really enjoying the yew. My first time working with yew.

I don't fancy that feather squirrel nor do I plan to part with me stick.

Very nice bow. I have made several yew bows and have one that John Strunk made for me. These pictures inspire me to leave laminated bows for a while and make some self bows. I have some old wood to use up. Once again ,nice job and be careful in cold weather. Yew is a lot more delicate than Osage.

Well, if you need to get rid of some of that "old wood" I can provide my address. ;-) I think I have two staves left.
