I don’t do turning yet, but have used Chinaberry for boxes and a couple of other small items.

As you say it’s stringy. It also seems to take forever to sand to smoothness for finishing.

What I cut out of our tree didn’t take long to dry at 6/4 -8/4 by 6×18. Maybe a couple of months and it was down to 6-10% MC.

I doubt if this helps you, but it’s all I got.
