What Next?

I'm pondering what to build next, I have some Hazel and Ash which is seasoned. My Yew staves need some more time, but there's one which was cut Oct 26th last year, I could start roughing that out a bit to speed up the final stages of seasoning and allow me to plan the bow.
Maybe a flat Ash bow with recurved tips, The Ash is a slice from just under the bark, the growth rings seem rather close and I'm not certain how the wood will be, that's why it was sliced off when making the kids bows for the club. It would be a quick fun project and I'd find out what the close grained Ash was like.
I'll make do with some armchair bowyery meanwhile until the weekend.
