This is ALL wood, a very dense hard wood known in the midwest as hedge or osage orange. It is a very beautiful yellow green when “green”, and it will turn to a rusty brown then barn gray as it weathers. It will not rot. Not difficult to work when green, but when cured and dry will clean the teeth off your saw.
This is now standing proudly on the farm from which it came, along with a mighty harvest of its relatives.
