I got this wood from a fellow a few blocks from my house. It is Hawthorn. Turned it green and created a huge pile of yellow sawdust. It has a reddish bark and really rough. I put two coats of boiled linseed oil on it for now. So far it hasn’t cracked. Does anyone have any experience using this wood? It is new to me. I had not heard of it before.
Since you guys are so nice… I thought I’d add one more pic. Just so you know I have a sense of humor.
I call this squashed hot dog bun a “Self portrait” of its maker. Can you see the resemblance?
