  • Bois d’Arc

    Bois d’Arc

    $27.00$103.00

    Bois d’Arc is a super-hard wood that is resistant to rot, which is why it’s used commonly used as a fence post. It’s also used by bowyers to make recurve and long bows due to its insane strength and resistance to warping. Bois d’Arc is famous for its seemingly magical ability to instantly dull a freshly honed edge on any tool, the reason for many of those four-letter words of my youth. This hardness comes from the high silica content in the soil where this tree grows in East Texas, which is extremely abrasive to tools. It’s also the reason behind the unique shimmer found in Bois d’Arc.

    Apple Wood

    American Holly

    $42.00$167.00

    American Holly has the most pure white color of any wood in the world. It is very hard to dry properly without cracking and must be harvested in the dead of winter or the wood will be spalted (stained) with a blue-grey fungus. This process makes American Holly quite expensive. Add to that the fact that it is a nightmare to keep from shifting in board form, and it’s easy to see why only the most meticulate artisans work with this wood.
