I am happy to inform you that all 3 of the major issues regarding owning a Yew self longbow have been addressed... I found the guy that has the skill...

Collaboration between Jamie MacDonald & Jeremy Humpherville. Jamie built these two west coast style paddle bows and Jeremy finished them with some stunning west coast artwork.

Welcome to Ravenbeak Natureworks.
We specialize in traditional bow making. We craft beautiful longbows and flatbows from local pacific yew. These bows are meant to be treasured and used, whether for hunting, target, or reenactment. Take a look and see what we're working on right now in the shop or come to one of our workshops and build your own bow.
