I’ve made a few bowls from Osage Orange. It is VERY hard and the color does change. Initially it starts out with that very bright yellow/orange color, but it turns to a very nice dark brown – I would say a mahogany brown . The grain will continue to show throughout the color change. The orange color will remain where the sun hasn’t hit it, but not nearly as intense as when originally cut. I do not use any stain or other color enhancements because I like the final (it’s been 2 years now) color or the wood.
