I just realized that I sent the following to one person, not the entire
NAFEX group as I had intended.

Regarding Osage orange: 
Currently on another list that I am on, osage orange is being discussed in
reference to it's woodworking qualities.  It seems to be desirable for tool
handles and other small hard projects, but it apparently is difficult to dry
and season without severe cracking, checking and splitting.

Living in Wisconsin where it is a rarity, I'd be interested in getting some
to make chisel handles and perhaps a mallet--just in case anyone has some
spare chunks of it around.
