I got a phone call today from a guy that lives up in the mountains that will be doing some logging for the forestry. He was telling me that he will be clearing out a few different species of wood and wanted to see if I wanted any of the rements of the cuttings before he gets rid of it either to the chipper for shavings or the mill. I can get them in 6" round and up - 5-6' lengths if I want............
The types of wood he will be cutting are: Manzinita - Alder - Oak - Willow - Box Elder
Told me that the Box Elder is pretty soft for turning and suggested the Willow would be stronger wood - Oak of course would be good but bland probably in color - Alder would be good - Manzininta for small turnings and decorations.........................I have not tried alot of these type of wood
Thoughts on what others think about these types of wood ??????????
