Dark Pacific Yew Wood Mantel

Blonde Pacific Yew Wood MantelWe are not quite sure why some of our pacific yew wood is on the one hand quite blonde on the outside live edge with ample sapwood.

As you can see from the pictures, one of the types of Yew is very dark with no sapwood evident. This color is very much like the old growth Western Red Cedar. We do not get very much of the darker Yew but at this time I do have 3-4 possible pieces.
