advice for yew knot.
« on: November 19, 2015, 03:46:56 pm »
Hoping for some advice on how best to treat this knot,  it's 6&1/2" down from the top nock, I chopped the bow down 15" after a sapwood splinter lifted, due to the new length of 64" I feel this area will be working more and I want maximum movement throughout to get to the 30ish" draw. (I've picked out the soft line of the knot edge with a pin and run in superglue, the pen lines on the back are roughly where I will continue to remove down to, not sure how much of the knot would be left).
Thanks if someone with more knowledge than me concerning knots see it as being a problem or/and could offer any advice,

Not much you can do with it. Considering its location, I'd continue on with your build.
Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.

Great, thank you wizardgoat 8), thought I'd better get it checked out and yeah, seems pretty solid.
