Yew Primitive Progress

This bow is to be 42# at 28", it's got an extra inch of length either end at the moment and still got a fair way to come back. The tiller is beginning to get reasonably even.

The string line is looking better now, it's biased towards the arrow pass but is within the grip area. Overall the bow has a slight S curve to it but is pulling nice and true. As I slim the tips and even up the limbs it should start to look elegant and interesting.
That's probably it until after Christmas now.
Here's the video:-

It's the winter solstice tomorrow so enjoy whatever midwinter festivity suits you. I'll be back with a round up of 2015 and maybe some timber hunting in the local wood. I fancy some Elder and Hazel to stash away.
