Fir for Turning?

George@Colonel's Workshop-Havertown PA
>Good Morning Everybody,

My best friend called me yeasterday from his daughter's home where he is visiting. His daughter had a 60 foot fir tree taken down, and Charlie claimed one of the trunk logs as his own, and says he has enough sections to nearly fill his station wagon. We plan to get together later next week and make bowl blanks. I never turned fir. Is it worth turning? What can I expect? Is it best turned green? We are both novices, so we'd appreciate your comments, and any photo you may have of turned fir. Thanks.

George
