Today I've been given a few green logs of the above timber, just cut down today. I've sealed the ends, so has anyone turned this that could give me any comments regards suitability for turning.
Thanks

ThanksA lot of it grows local to me (a weedy tree) but I don't find it worth turning myself. Your experience might be different.

Thanks Neil, I've sealed a small amount now I'll give it a go, if nothing else it will give me some practice at green turning.
