    Hello again everyone these are some great examples to what you can do with a solid piece of Yew tree. This has become one of my favorite types of wood to work with for its beauty. It was very dense and surprisingly stringy to work with. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13"><br><br>Hope you all enjoy this thanks for viewing.<br><br>'Goliath'<br><a href="http://imgbox.com/abjkNANe" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/abjkNANe.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/abnMeTi5" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/abnMeTi5.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/absugFzP" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/absugFzP.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/acoAR67t" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/acoAR67t.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adonjPaw" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adonjPaw.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adszFYiq" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adszFYiq.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adzu5nI3" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adzu5nI3.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/acdxsOIu" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/acdxsOIu.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/acxyQ6Wu" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/acxyQ6Wu.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <br><br>Lil Brother<br><br><a href="http://imgbox.com/abqvAZWC" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/abqvAZWC.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/abn6G8Q9" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/abn6G8Q9.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/acza4jjy" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/acza4jjy.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adzhYepw" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adzhYepw.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/adoghbLb" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/adoghbLb.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <a href="http://imgbox.com/advRri8l" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://t.imgbox.com/advRri8l.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>
