This natty took more work than most. I found it as a dead branch on a living Osage Orange tree. It was badly weathered and cracked. But there was a pretty good shape, size, and a hope that the heartwood was still strong. So I took here home, pared the soft outer wood away, filled the cracks and cut a notch to fill a gap in the butt. Then I sanded to 400, wiped on BLO and finished with paste wax. I have her banded up with tubes on tabs. She’s a great shooter! Thanks for looking!
