Can’t help you as to where to find it, but if you end up with a little more than you need, I would be happy to purchase some from you for pen blanks.

I would google hardwood dealers and check caigs list in the area you are going. Yew is a bit rare and probably a bit more spendy. You might find a local sawyer who has some he’ll part with for a good price. I saw some on ebay a couple of weeks ago. The guy said he had lots, but I decided to pass on it.

Not sure what stores in the area sell it, I got a log of the stuff in my shop off of a guy who was selling off his supply.

The dust is really nasty stuff, be careful.
