Many of the techniques that work well in building furniture
from dry woods and in timber framing will not work as
well on freshly-felled wet lumber.

Green woodworking techniques that emphasize the
round tenon in furniture address this issue well. Chair
bodgers used to put together a spring pole lathe in
the woods and build chairs or at least manufacture
chair parts from the trees and saplings there.

A spring pole lathe is not hard to make, not heavy,
and kind of fun to use.
