This is my first time using yew. The bow is 58" from nock to nock. It's 43 lbs at 25". The tip overlays are sheep horn. The skins are broad banded water snakes. I used tru oil for the finish. The stave was pretty much flat with a hint of deflex. I left it alone and just flipped the tips. I made string grooves on the belly side of the recurved tips. That is the first time I have done that. I enjoyed working with yew. It's much softer than the osage I'm used to.
I started out with nothin' and I still got most of it left
