Joachim's Yew
« on: January 20, 2019, 05:52:24 am »
Nothing special here, only a little bow for a friend, it's his first bow so it doesen't matter it she got a little light. Had an issue with a branch which I had to work around so that I first wasn't sure if I could get a bow out of that stave. Tiller is not perfect but further tillering would have tillered the bow away completly. As it's short and straight I left the outers stiff for better string angle. 62"ntn, 28# @ 28".
Cheers

That yew sure is pretty. Nice job. Not sure what the issues with tiller are, looks pretty darn good to me.
