    <span class="postbody"><br><br> it´s yew wood, The brighter part seems to beee hard as rock and the red one is so soft you be carfull to touch it with a ring on your fingers. Normaly you use this wood for making naturals bows out of it. the hard part in front the soft one in back. I´ll thinking to buy a rope for biulding one but I think about 120&euro; for one rope with about 180cm is to much for the first try, But my friend found some pices in this firewood and so i´ll safed it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"></span>
