Pacific Yew

Pacific Yew is among the hardest of all softwood species. Yew is relatively uncommon, and larger tree trunks are usually hollow. This wood is certainly a unique species. Pacific Yew wood density and working characteristics are more inline with a heavy hardwood than a softwood, yet its tight, fine grain and smooth texture gives a lustrous finish.

Pacific Yew veneer is resistant to most insect attack and very durable in regard to decay resistance. It has a good natural luster and straight grain with a fine uniform texture.
