It would be much lighter than a bow of similar ST made from normal wood. Gurps usually doesn't go into this level of detail.

You could make much stronger bows/crossbows out of Essential Wood but Gurps usually doesn't go into that level of detail either. You could make crossbows in the ST range given for historical steel crossbows but without steel's reduced eficiency due to the shorter length bolts necessary due to steel's much greater weight.
