Very nice. I’ve only worked osage a couple times, but I like it. I did a fretboard on a guitar out of it once and it worked beautifully.

If I lived anywhere close, I would be sitting there.

Do you have a website for the wood?

Good Golly, Miss Molly!
I’ve done a bit of work with “Hedge”. You must have 700-1000 lb there.
Make great table tops.
Beautiful stuff.

LUST!! Wow, you guys in Texas must have much bigger Osage Orange trees than we do. There is quite a bit around here, but a good sized tree is maybe half the diameter of what those slabs came out of.

Some great looking wood. Wouldn’t have a few small peices laying around I could use for pen blanks do you?

Your website for wood is on it’s way to be an impressive site.

Let me know about the pen blank peices, I will pay for them. I don’t have any thing to trade.

holy cow, those must weigh a ton. i just made two 6’ coffee tables and they are very dense, so i can imagine how heavy those are. got another log coming. i love the stuff. finished one with General Finishes Gel Topcoat and the other with Waterlox Marine Finish, will be interesting to see how the color change differs…..
