Turning Archive 2007

>I've turned a fair amount of Australian burls but this is the first time using corrugata. The piece I'm doing is a burl cap and quite unbalanced and irregular, about 23" X 17" X 4". It's also rather dry.
I'm finding this wood to be harder than woodpecker lips, I mean really hard, beating me up hard.
I'm curious, have any of you turned this stuff and found it to be this hard or have I just hit it lucky? If this is typical, it's my last time.
ps: I'll post a pic when finished
