1st YEW. All Natural (FD added)
« on: May 25, 2017, 07:46:03 pm »
Made my 1st yew bow, left all the natural deflex in it due to a 3 1/2" crack that formed after I stripped the bark off. Filled full of superglue and let it set for a few months thinking it wasn't worth fooling with. So finally decided to take a stab at it. So here's what I came up with

58" ntn
52#@26"
2" of natural deflex

I used yew heart wood for the tip overlays
Some leather Bryce sent me that matched the heart wood descent
Dyna 97 8 strand with mink silencers
Money shot will come later when I get me a photographer

I really like the effect you got with that knot. It's almost holographic. Nice

Beautiful bow in all aspects, not to sure on the yew over lays, yew is pretty soft, but it sure looks nice.

I love the look of those overlays. Coolest looking tips I've seen in a long time. And the rest of it ain't too shabby neither! Excellent!  (-S
