It's one of the few woods grown in my area that I find usable for pool cue
butts. But it's hard to find the guy who wants a yellow cue! I've made a
dozen or so over the years!
just more hot air! 8^)

Makes absolutely wonderful bows. The wood is bright yellow when freshly cut, but
ages on exposure
to air and light to a beautiful brown with cherry overtones. The wood contains a lot
of silica, so
keep your tools sharp, and sharpen often. Supposedly good for woodturning, but I
have not tried it
on my lathe.
My current osage orange (another name for it, also called horseapple) bow changed for
yellow to a decent brown in about two weeks. Probably hasn't darkened too much in
the last couple
of years. I have no idea how Sherm keeps the pool cues bright yellow for years.
