Maclura Pomifera

Originally from Texas, this small tree yields hard orange-yellow wood with often vivid colors, befitting its name. Used by Native Americans for constructing bows, it was well regarded for this purpose. In 19th century Arkansas, a good Osage Orange bow was worth “a horse and a blanket.” Your Wyrmwood piece may not be valued as highly in that time period, but it would at least fetch a mule and a nice pair of socks.
