You can probably find some members that would exchange a Flat Rate box with you for one full of Walnut and/or Cherry.

I have some Osage orange but it has been dried for probably 12 years or more at this point I would think it is like turning a paving stone.  Smiley

Bois d'arc was used for street cobbles in many East Texas and Louisiana towns. My Wife's grandfather was very proud of a fence line that His Grandfather stretched when he got home from the Civil War they were the original bois d'arc posts and stretchers.

I have a bunch of Goncalo Alves squares (approx. 6x6x2), Longhi (8x2x2) all kiln dried, cut them from lumber but I will never get to them as I have too many blanks laying around. Trade?
