If Lemonwood has any failings it is its tendency to follow the
string. This tendency can be overcome to a large extent by the addition
of a centre lamination sandwiched between the Hickory and Lemonwood we
taper the centre lamination to ensure the ratio between the different
remain the same throughout the length of the bow. The timbers used for
the centre lamination can vary with availability but tends to be either
Purpleheart which has a striking purple/red colour or Greenheart, one
used for making fishing rods. The handle can either be woollen braid or
leather, both are trimmed with leather decorated gold leaf in a variety
of patterns produced from original Victorian pattern wheels.
