FREE OSAGE
« on: January 20, 2011, 10:22:00 PM »
Last year I cut up a downed Osage tree, about 2+ feet across. I had the main part cut into slabs for later, the outside of the tree ( slabs with bark on ) are standing outside and are free to anyone who wants them. There are 3or4 from 4feet to 7feet long and 10"to18" wide and about 4"thick. I live in Buffalo Mills PA, thats 20miles north of Cumberland MD and 12Miles south of Bedford PA. PM me if interested.

Thomas this is a grand offer.

I wish I lived closer.

Some of the bow building guys that cut their own lams ought to jump at the chance since they're gonna pay shipping when they buy their wood anyway.

Thank you!

God bless,Mudd

YES Mudd, I know gas is high but if anyone works his own wood, this is do-able! A 200 mile trip might cost $50.00 but I had my son send me an Osage stave last year - 1 stave, It cost me $26.00 shipping!! Here you have enough wood for 10 to 20 staves - FREE. OH, I should mention the whole lot weighs about n300 to 400lbs!

Well it looks like I am off to PA to meet Mr Weaver and get some golden wood.  It will be nice to meet you Thomas and the trip will do me good to get out for a while.  See you Saturday.

Made the trip, met a great guy and hopefully made a new friend.  Got some good looking Osage to boot.  Hopefully there will be a few staves, and definitely some billets in the pieces.  Also, passed by George Stout's house and waved at him, hope he saw it...lol.  I wanted to stay a lot longer, but the weather played a big part in me getting out of Dodge early.  And the bad part, Tom had some homemade bread that I was to get but didn't.  That would almost be worth another trip up there.   :D

Well tell you what.  You go and cut another osage or some of that ash like you had, and I will make another trip and get the bread?  :wavey:    :notworthy:

I'll tell my wife about this, ( she likes to experiment with food on unsuspecting subjects ). Its the evil in her! Really though, we just buy wheat and she grinds it to a flour with an electric grinder, bakes it with honey - no sugar, etc, etc. Very "back to the earth type" NO - you can't have her!

What a fine and generous offer/deal this was!
Longbows, you see, do not make mistakes…there is no tuning to distract attention from the task at hand or provide excuses when arrows wind up in places we did not ask them to visit.
