    Last of the mk 3s.
  2. Rowan, field maple, hornbeam depending on where you are. You can coppice them if you want a quick turnaround on your firewood or leave them to grow and they'll still be around a few hundred years later.

    Can't see any problems with this. I've run 35kW generators in 20' shipping containers with just vents cut in the doors and the exhaust piped through the roof.
  4. Yew for bow making for sale

    I think it might be a bit of an old wives tale that gets passed around that English yew is no good for bowmaking. Famous bowyer Chris Boyton swears that English yew was as good as anything in the world. He was on Ray Mears tv show way back for those that might have watched it. You get a lot of variation within any species but yew is yew and if it's dense, straight and knot free it'll make a good bow. It might not be the best wood to learn how to make a bow though if you're just starting out. They say a good bow at full draw is seven eights broken. Breaking bows is just part of the learning curve. Snapping bits of yew is an expensive hobby when there is stuff like ash and hazel to cut your teeth on.
