    Another use for the wood is for archery. Where ever it grew, Native Americans used it to make their bows. It was extensively traded well past the regions in which it grew. There are several companies that sell "staves" of wood, especially Osage. It usally costs around 60+ dollars for a six foot long by 2' wide stave. All you have to do is find some straight pieces and you're in business. If you don't get it, you would soon after trying to split the stuff.
