Yew wood intrigues me, not only for its beauty but for its powers, even to cure cancer.
It's Gaelic name is Ldho or Lbur.
But the leaves are poisonous, so don't be tempted to eat them.
It is a beautifully coloured wood with a rich orange glow but also a strong grain which can weave an interesting pattern like waves lapping on a shore.
