    Very nice work. Now bear with me here, is Bois d'Arc the name of the form or the wood. Either way it's beautiful

    Bois d'Arc is the name of the wood...also called Osage Orange plus about a dozen different names. I just grew up knowing it as Bois d'Arc, pronounced Bodark in East texas.

    Cody,

    Great looking, as always.

    Ron,

    FYI, It's the name of the wood.

    Super nice! I'm looking forward to try my hand at HF.

    I don't know how to pronounce "Bois d'Arc", so I think I'll just call Orange wood.

    Another nice one, Cody. That wood is always an attention getter.

    Stunning. Don't you wish the color would remain like that?
    Upside is that even when it darkens, it will still be beautiful. Just different.

    bois d'arc

    Interesting name of what is commonly known as osage orange. Does anyone know of the properties of this species, as the translation of bois d'arc would roughly be bow wood, and in bows and arrows. Does it bend much? I don't know if we have it up here, or if we do, but by another name.
