It's just that spiral growth kills the whole bow so fast. Earlier i didn't take it account, but now that you got a bow with good dimensions, that gives up on 21".... I really want to make a proper warbow out of rowan, cause i believe its doable. People here in Finland don't agree with me, so i want to prove them wrong! :D Next time i got to really check the grain is straight.

Feels bad man. I am too cutting some elm soon, although they are probably dead standing trees (healthy elm is rare here) so I am not completely sure.
