you can read the full review here.
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... I found the guy that has access to superior quality high altitude Yew and I found the guy that has the willingness to invest himself in making self bows... incredibly all three are in fact the same guy... Jamie MacDonald...
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.
Our latest shop update...
We have some stock bows for sale!
Two videos on the latest bows heading out of the shop - 3 custom bows & 7 bows headed over to the Longbow Shop in the UK. Know they are all headed to good homes.
Here's a little look at our Standard Bow Workshop.
