Few weeks ago Andy (AKM-SLINGSHOTS) kindly sent me this interesting yew's raw antler. At the first it seemed not easy to figure out; it was so asymmetric and with a dark branch enclosed in a fork. But yew is a beautiful wood and I tried to make the best I could. It has come out an unusual little shooter that I named "Yume". I hope you like it. Thank you very much Andy. Thanks for watching. All the best, Bob.

Great job on a beautiful piece of wood. You do have a way of getting the best out of any fork.

Andy- You sent it to the right guy...if anyone can coax beauty from a fork, it is Mr. Fionda.

Great job Roberto!!!

Hello
That dark scar is awesome

Do you know what kind of yew is it?
I have some european yew (taxus baccata) in my garden and I was thinking about using it to make a catty but it is a little bit toxic

Any problems during work?
Cheers

It has that look of laminate by nature, how much better does it get?

Kudos for Andy, sending it to one of the guys who could make the most from it, and my hats off to you for crafting
such a stunning fork!

Hi mate, I don't know, It should be Taxus Baccata, but I turn the question to Andy who gathered it. I've worked a Taxus Baccata (here's in the pic), I had no problems at all and the wood is beautiful, as you can see. Just wear a protective mask when working.
Thanks for your feedback. Cheers, Bob.
