I got a chance this week to turn something new. This is artificially “aged” Osage Orange that is made to look like it is mud cured green hedge. Mud cured takes years to cure, is hard to come by and is not cheap when you can get a good piece so I was excited to try this out.
This is the first and second turkey trumpets ever turned using this hedge and I will turn #3 later this week. The down side is this stuff is anything but cheap but it is a treat to work and beautiful when done.
The mouth pieces are African blackwood with a brass ferrule.
Finish is natural stain and lacquer.
