Hello. I am clearing all the ironwood out of our maple bush. I am just wondering what the uses of it are. And if anyone would have any ideas on how to sell it. Thanks

Tool handles. I doubt that you will find anyone willing to pay for it.

They used to use it for things like wagon wheel hubs.

I’d like to have some, actually.

It is wonderful to turn. I would like to see how much it would be to ship to me in the USPS priority boxes like the 12×12x6. How big is it?

Kitchen utensils? Sell it as an unbreakable spatula. Or were you looking to just sell the lumber?

I think it’s good for making bows… If it’s straight, look up archery forums, and see if there is any interest.. ............. Jerry (in Tucson)

Also I live in Ontario Canada. I checked for shipping costs and I can ship a 12×12x6 box full anywhere in states for $60 or less.
