I got a free chunk of Osage orange a while back and completed a bowl. I did’t go through my normal drying process, I tried something new. This wood is green and wet. I turned it thin to start and dried it in the box of shavings for a week. Then I took it out and touched it up with the bowl gouge. After that I sanded it and put on three coats of wipe on poly. I don’t know if it will change much only time will tell. I like not having to leave it in the drying box for three or four months.
