Here is my latest creation in Osage Orange. I added a top of Ebony and styled it in a classis design w/o a center band. The scanned picture really does not do it justice. The cut is against the grain and after 5 attempts today I finally had success. The finish is blo/ca right off the lathe smooth as silk. Osage Orange as with most woods are difficult to turn in this way but wow, what a result!
