palm??

>A friend from CA sent me a couple half rounds of some kind of palm -- freshly cut. It's just a bunch of straws! Is there any hope for turning this stuff? I know the drill -- sharp tools, etc. But really -- is this worth even putting on the lathe? If I try it, would I be best served by first soaking it in wood sealer or something like that? How does one deal with this stuff, and is it worth the effort? Thanks, Gary
