My stack is kind of the same thing! I bought a large stack of Walnut from a guy whose dad had died and he was clearing out his shop. Just before i arrived to pick it up, he called and said he had found another stack and wanted to know if I wanted it for the same price. Well long story short, I got all he had for 100 bucks and it filled the bed of my pick-up. I got it home and all of the extra he added turned out to be Osage. As all of it was all rough cut and aged, all the out side was dark and dirty so I couldn’t tell the difference. It wasn’t till I started to machine some “walnut” that I found the difference. No one here had ever seen it so it took some research to even find out what it was. It had been at the bottom of this guys stash for years but no one seems to know how long. Or for that matter how it ended up in this area of Oregon! Thanks for your information, I appreciate it!
