    I think it’s cool that you have yew available. I live in California, and there are some trees of that type here, but finding the lumber is another story. It’s rarer than hen’s teeth. I have one plank.

    • A neighbor gave me a huge pile of wood a while back, odd stuff that his family had cut and had sawn over many years. In it there were maybe 5-6 planks of the yew. I assume it was a garden tree. It is also quite rare here, and it took me a while to figure out what it was after I ran it through a planer and realized I hadn’t ever seen anything like it.
