Thanky ou everyone for your replies. After a lot of research, I see that Black Gum tree seems to be a real pain to mill and dry properly…I guess the twisted grain causes cupping and twisting in it’s lumber. There just doesn’t seem to be anyone doing anything with it except for a few bowl makers. The Sassafras is an option although I think I’m better off focusing on some of the Beech trees. If I can get a few logs to the mill this summer, I should be able to start a pair of end tables in a few years time. Thanks again!
