Hedgewood Osage is this Osage orange? If so, you gonna make some bows? That stuff is wicked hard. Dulls your tools really fast. My friend turned some once to make a dance staff. It was a tool sharpening festival. It was pretty when he got done, yellow with a orange/brown grain.

The saw dust makes a pretty yellow - orange dye. Used some on some quills way back -- can't remember what color I got tho'. Iron mordant will turn it yellow green. One year some folks at Arrowmont were doing a natural dye class across the hall from the jewelry studio; one lady had 3-4 colors of yard goods from Osage orange, just changing her mordant and pretreatment.
