Almond tree wood good for woodworking?
A friend of mine that has piece of land, is going to fell down 3 almond trees next winter and he's promised to give me all of them.
While I wait for that to happen I wonder if anyone has worked it or knows how almond tree wood looks like and wether it is hard to work with, or even if it is worth giving it a try or is only good for the fire pile.
People here say it is great wood for burning because it lasts long, gives great heat and leaves almost not ashes, but they do not know about making furniture out of it.
Any info will be greatly appreciated
