I just split open a pistachio log that is freshly cut.
The heartwood is a lovely pistachio green! I asume it will turn brown with age, like so many of the colored woods, but it surely is pretty now.
I want to make pen blanks from the heartwood. If I cut it into blanks and wax the ends, about how long will it take to dry to the point it can be turned without splitting. Bear in mind that the relative humidity here in Phoenix is under 10% most of the time.
