Texans tend to call Osage Orange “Bodark”
In fact the first time i heard someone say Osage Orange i had no clue what that was and someone said “Oh you mean Bodark!”

I was hoping to find show notes for this one. You mentioned several upgrades that I wanted to lookup today. Especially the band saw items. What were the guides called again? (Oh, nm, I’ll re-listen.)

Was listening to the podcast (first off, great show!), and was thinking up ideas for Matt for the X-carve. Do you have a favorite or family board game that the box is starting to fall apart? Make a custom box with the cover art carved on the lid and a custom insert that fits all those pieces just right. Maybe carve the whole thing at once from a solid block.
