If you are talking about Nyssa sylvatica, aka Tupelo or Black Tupelo, why not. It is strong, hard to split, heavy, and in Colonial times, was used for water pipes. Sand very smooth and seal with mixture of bol, paint thinner, and beeswax and enjoy. Post pics of the wood to be sure we’re talking about the same thing.
