English Yew from Timber Bowties

English Yew (Taxus baccata) is beautiful wood whose sapwood is a pale yellow, and heartwood is a light, orange brown. The latest cuts are sapwood, and they are absolutely beautiful. Historically, English Yew was used by the British military to make military longbows in medieval warfare. If that’s not cool, I don’t know what is. You’re gonna sound like a warrior explaining that to the flock of beautiful ladies around you. This tie has beautiful grain, without heavy contrast between the striations. That makes it very versatile.
