Yew stave giveaway
« on: January 28, 2019, 06:47:23 pm »
Short version: I've got more yew squirrelled away right now than I  deserve. I'd like some of it to do something interesting.

Quality varies from pretty good to kinda interesting. 20 to 40 rpi, sapwood from 1/8 to 1/4 " Split, stored dry but unheated, bark on. Harvested 2016-17-18. Lengths to 80".  From small diameter trees ( 4-6") I got there just before the harvesters)

Site references: traded with DC and Wizardgoat, known to Blayne and Penderbender. Will ship Canada and US. I'd like to send wood to two individuals. Will draw names Feb 10

Long version:  I've been lurking for a while here, and wanted to contribute something to the community.  I've never shipped staves and have been hesitant.  I won't put anyone's wood in the mail without their approval of pictures of exactly what they are getting.  Pretty hesitant and don't  want to leave anyone grumpy about what they got.  I  think I know generally what to look for and how to describe it honestly. If this works out I'd love to set up some trades. Please don't be in a rush...

If I left out details anyone needs, let me know

Can you put my name in the hat?  80 inch yew would make me the perfect bow.

Sebastian, I'd like to get in on this but I don't need 80". 66" or so would be fine.

Sebastian that's a very nice offer you put out there. I would love to put my name in your hat. I promise I won't be grumpy with anything I might receive. If I were to receive one hopefully I could make a bow that wouldn't make you grumpy.lol.
Very nice gesture.

Please put my name in the hat with the others. Not ever having a yew stave, I'd not look cross-eyed at any stave if I should win one.

Thanks again for such a generous offer.

I'm already too late but I'd love an 80 inch low ring count character stave if one still stands.
