Yew Wood for Scales


Dealer - Purveyor
Meh....yew isn't a particularly pretty wood, at least not to me. I have a couple of self bows made out of yew and it's sort of a light mustard color. That of course is my opinion. It has a really long and straight grain which would make it great for stabilizing or dying I think.
Well the guy that has the wood has a couple of logs of it. He got it during the yew bark craze in the late 90's and planned to make a couple of bows. Apparently this wood has a light yellowish color with a red heart wood. He says it looks good and since it was offered to me I think I'll get a couple of pieces from him.
