I love to turn yew because it is always exciting and you get good contrast between the sap and heart woods. However the unexpected regularly turns up by way of splits, bark inclusions and other imperfections.
This wood was surprisingly straightforward; it came from a tree generously given to me from a garden in Shoelands, near Puttenham in Surrey. I left it for two years to dry outside before turning it.A good sized natural edge bowl resulted.
