Hickory / Lemonwood Finished & Steaming Done

The Hickory backed Lemonwood is finished and hopefully the lad who owns it will soon settle in to it, shame the weather is so poor as he won't get much of a chance until it thaws.

I've finished steaming the Yew stave for now.
I should be able to reduce it a tad more, file in some temporary nocks and try to flex it on the tiller.
It's a bit cold in the garage to do much, but I'll manage the odd short burst.
You can see the lateral bend has mostly been taken out but I've left the rflexed tip. The sapwood is nicely reduced now too.
