Black Locust is very hard and will dull a chainsaw very quickly.
It puts out good heat as firewood but smells bad.
Honey Locust is just as hard but smells much better burning.
Nice call makeup.

Thanks a lot for the great comments everyone. I love doing endgrain stuff. An old member frshwtr got me started on doing it years ago. Itís a pain and hard on tools but the results are awesome. I can see my trying some more of this in the future. Gotta remember where I got this stuff from! Lol
Tripod you are so correct. Either Locust is hard on tools. Turning this stuff crosscut on a wood lathe will straight beat you up. And dulls my carbide tools! Osage is another that is great for firewood and makes just as great of a call. I love it!!

I love black locust and osage also, from their fresh yellow to aged homey color.

Thanks guys! Larry carbides are the way to go. But honestly between this, Osage and some really old growth Oak, turning endgrain stuff even beats those up. But the results of endgrain turns are worth the work
