Wasn't sure where to post this so here goes. After my nephew asked me to make him a bow and arrows whilst out in the woods with a piece of green hazel and some bamboo arrows I thought I'd like to have a proper go myself.
I'd like to make something along the lines of a Long Bow so I'm after a piece of yew, preferably a fairly thick log about 150-175cm so I can get a straight staff out of it.
So if anyone has a piece or has recently cut down a yew or is about to I'd be interested in a piece. I'm based near Heathfield in East Sussex so willing to drive a bit to collect and willing to pay/swap/exchange something for the right piece or if anyone can put me onto someone/somewhere I could get a piece.
Cheers in advance
