Do you sell the bows you make ? Have you looked into making traditional Native American bows out of that osage and working with your friends to put out complete traditional bow and arrow sets. With the internet a point and click away you could have yourself a market and start teaching others on weekend workshops to make some side money.

I have sold a few custom order bows.  I sell a lot of osage staves at traditional archery events.  My hobby is fully funded by selling wood.  It pays for my trips, tools, supplies, etc.  It even funded the build of a rustic teardrop shaped camper.  I wanted something that looked like an old tool shed but could hold a bunch of bow staves and give me a dry place to sleep.

Beautiful bows.  I made one out of osage but could never get it tillered correctly.  Now it's a wall hanger.  I was a flint knapper for many years.  Don't do it anymore due to repetitive motion injuries.  I made matched sets of points for primitive hunters like yourself.  This is a set I sent to a hunter in Bad Ischl, Austria many years ago.  My points have killed deer, coyotes, and a turkey.  Gary

Those are some very impressive points Todd.  Making a matched set of points isn't easy.  That is a skill that I wish I had.
