Masterful, simply masterful.
... alone in distant woods or fields, in unpretending sproutlands or pastures tracked by rabbits, even in a bleak and, to most, cheerless day .... .  I suppose that this value, in my case, is equivalent to what others get by churchgoing & prayer.  Hank Thoreau, 1857

Leon, unfortunately this bow is so ugly you should DEFINITELY give it away to some loser friend! Hmmm I would recommend someone whos name starts with a J! :P ;)
As you already know this bow is insanely well crafted especially considering how crooked it was! And no I wont stop telling people how good you are at building bows. Hats off!
See you soon & cheers,
Jaap

Thanks Jaap, will take it with me to our next shoot so you can try it! Hows the yew recurve coming along? You will need to post pictures here when finished of course!

Nice!! Very much looking forward to it! Oh that thing? Hmm Im not so sure about it xD. But well see!
I will put it here if it succeeds.

This is one of the best bows I have ever seen. You, sir, are becoming a true master in our craft.

I'm unfamiliar with that wood, would you say it's similar to any other particular wood?

It is top bow wood for sure! It is similar like yew in that you can use the sap on the back and it has great compression strength so you can get away with a narrow rounded belly. It is a little heavier then yew though.

Over here it mostly grows in gardens and some parks so it is hard to get. It usually grows pretty crooked too!

I was going to say that it looks a lot like yew.
Greg,
