Ironwood

>Has anyone had experience cutting and turning ironwood? I was just given several fairly large pieces. Do I need to cut them on a metal cutting bandsaw or can I do it with a wood cutting blade? Can it be turned using standard bowl gouges or does it need to be scraped with a HSS cutter? Thanks for any input you can give me.
