    Avocado Wood Turning ?

    I saw a ad tonight about someone selling avocado wood from a tree that was cut down. I still need to call to find out details but i thought i would ask if anyone has turned avocado before. I have never turned it myself so maybe someone out there can tell me something about it....Thanks Dan

    I've never turned it, but I've seen some nice pieces made from it. I don't recall any details about the grain or color, but I remember that it looked good.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
