This one is Osage Orange, just under 6” in diameter and 2” deep. It is a wood with really strong grain lines, but cut well and polished up to be buffed to a shine without any finish at all. It’s impossible to photograph the chatoyance displayed as you turn this wood in your hands. The last picture shows it a little, as the grain lines almost disappear in the light as you move it, but the orange glow of light on the surface is missing. It’s very heavy in the hand. This was my first turning in Osage, and I’ll have to get some more to play with!
