New character Yew Longbow
« on: January 30, 2022, 05:19:44 am »
Took my love for yew character bows to next level with this one. (with a nice tiller challenge too 😊)
It is 42 lbs at 30 inch and after a 100 shots it is still fine so im confident with the mechanics.
I am really stoked how it turned out, hope you like it...

Very nice yew character bow. Unbraced profile shows how well she's tillered.   :OK

Unbelievable job there.

That is one of those staves whereby 99.9% of the world sees a mostly useless stick...0.1% sees a potential bow...and then just a fraction of that 0.1% is then able to transform it into that bow.

Impressive looking piece! Difficult character to tiller but looks like you nailed it.

In fact, i have used almost all the clean staves i could find in the estate where i am allowed to cut it.  I selected this piece as a statement that there's still much more where you can make a bow from.  looking at the result, i might have started the wrong way. ;D ;D ;D
