Overview

Argentine Osage Orange is much larger and of higher quality than American Osage Orange. It has a rich, yellow tone, and is extremely stable, durable, and strong. It is an ideal wood for turnery, as it machines and polishes easily. These turning blanks are available in an assortment of sizes for bowls, platters, carvings, bottle stoppers, chess pieces, tool handles, table legs, spindles, finials, candlesticks and whatever else your imagination can conjure up!

Due to high demand and limited supply, we cannot always guarantee that this item will be in stock. Turning Blanks come rough sawn to nominal thickness and are coated with wax.
