Yew Recurve 30#@26"
« on: December 10, 2021, 04:30:42 pm »
Cheers Folks and a happy YEW year!
I made this bow from a small but very clean yew stave I already have since a long time. I made this bow for my wife for christmas and she was really happy about it.
It draws 30lbs@26 and I made her very light arrows with 70gn points. Chasing a ring was done very carefully I left 2 rings of sapwood.

Awesome bow, and I love your progression of draw pictures. I hope your wife loves it, with many hours of shooting together to follow. pssst... I got my wife a custom quiver for Christmas.
