Osage Orange, Tx Ebony
Here’s the latest project completed: an A/D set made from Tx Ebony and Osage Orange. The Osage was cut in Katy, TX a few years ago and the Tx Ebony I’ve had for a few years. I’ve never made a combination like this and I’m pleased with how it looks. Tx Ebony is a real pain to work with because the tree doesn’t yield a lot of good wood. Matt Willis of the Killdares has a set made of my best stock of this wood with Axis antler mounts. That set turned out beautifully but it took many more hours to turn because I ended up rejecting quite a few pieces in the middle of production.
I’m going to Houston tomorrow and taking this set with me to play for a few days before sending it to the customer. I hope to put up a video soon but I’m going to be in the car all day tomorrow making the 16 hour drive. Hopefully I’ll be there in time for the Houston session at the Mucky Duck!
More to come…
