Short video of bow@3.0.0.

bow@1 and bow@2 both snapped. :/

I had thought that saplings would be best, but I think I was wrong for two reasons:

1. Saplings, once bent, seem to tend to retain that now-bent shape. There is more ductility[1] than elasticity.

2. Saplings perhaps have less dense/strong fibres? This is my hypothesis, since it would explain why the more mature tree limbs seem to be able to sustain greater stress forces.
