ken90712 you might know this as Osage Orange. It is native to this area (TX, OK, AK). I call it Osage Orange when I want to impress someone. I didn’t know that it was call Osage Orange till a couple of years ago.
The grain does stand out on this wood and it is sturdy.
Thanks for the comments everyone.

Very neat. It’s a cacophony of end grain….

I like this board, it just seems that making it entirely of osage orange would be hard on your knives if it was for everyday use with a Janka hardness of 2040.
I like the randomness of the grain and color variation here though.
What did you finish it with?

I love the tight contrast between the different grain layers. Really nice effect.

I grew up calling that a ‘horse-apple’ tree. Another spelling is ‘Bois D’arc’ and pronounced bo-dark.Wikipedia has a pretty interesting history on it.
By the way, very nice board
