Pruning Eucalyptus

Beautiful day today so I've been lopping some of our Eucalyptus, it's huge, we planted it when we moved to this house about 16 years ago so it's pretty fast growing stuff.
I was up an extension ladder to reach this bit, I don't know if I'll be able to get a bow out of it, but it would be fun to make a bow from a tree which we planted.
I finished off the grip of the 'Needle' bow and added a cow horn arrow plate, I've not used cow horn before and I used a criss cross stitch on the grip for a change which seemed to work nicely. I've given it 3 coats of Danish oil too.
