While I'm bitching: I finally managed to get a long, straight piece of red karee (a local hardwood), split it and discovered that, for some reason, the grain runs in a spiral. This is apparently a thing with some trees. Which was a disappointment, given that I've been waiting on that particular tree to offer up a suitable limb for years now.


All of which makes me think that part of the reason for the circular-section tropical longbow might be that there's no point trying to follow grain boundaries when they wrap around the damn log.
