English Yew Bowl

New 2021 I would have turned possibly seventy odd bowls from English Yew and would have to be one of my favourite species to work with. This came from a 140 year old church yard planting which i milled in about 2002 this had a butt log diameter of nearly one metre. There is so much history and folk law about Yew trees including the Norman Long Bows being made from this timber. Is very slow growing with extremely tight growth rings with the grain patterns along with a myriad of colours just stunning Finish is a solution of boiled linseed oil polyurethane and vegetable turps buffed then waxed. Sold in a week of it going on line.
