I have a friend that has a fairly large (for this type of tree) Dogwood tree that was blown over in a recent storm and has offered to allow me to get whatever wood I can out of it. I have heard that, once dry, Dogwood is a very, very hard dense wood. I have also heard that it will polish to a very high sheen. This main bole of the tree is probably a little less than 12” diameter at the base and about 7-8” at the top. Has anyone out there had experience in using this wood? Any suggestions for seasoning, sawing, preparation, etc.?
