Green spindle turning?

wilbur
>I've read a lot about green wood turning as far as bowls are concerned, but not much as it relates to spindle turning. The reason I'm asking is that I was thinking of making new handles for some old turning tools I have out of some trees that fell over in the neighborhood recently.

Is it advisable to try to turn handles out of green wood, or should I just cut out blanks and wait for them to dry before turning?
