I was looking at Martin's latest board cut and instantly recognized the yew he used for the palm swell. I happen to be a lifelong fan of Robin Hood. He and his erstwhile yeomen all had stout bows of yew. I have seen many bows and a few slingshots made of yew on some of the British forums. It would really warm my heart if I could get hold of a hunk of that beautiful stuff to make a slingshot out of. Does it even exist in the U.S.? And if it doesn't, are there any Englismen out there who could get me a piece or a fork of it? Or is there anybody who could tell me where to get some?
I have a burning desire.
