I haven't tried deer hoove yet. I want to try pig hoove first! It will take a pretty large one to get enough material.

Great build along. Cool Photos! THANK YOU.

Does the canary wood keep the yellow look as it ages?

Is there anything that can be done with OSAGE to keep the yellow? I do like the caremelized look of the osage as it ages, but I also really like the Yellow it has when it is first worked with!

The canary shouldn't turn like osage. Osage can be slowed but not stopped from what I understand.
