dry timber advice please

ken chase
>I live in the Calif. desert. Reading this board makes it clear green wood is the way to go. However,
I was just given access to a lot full of cut timber that belongs to a tree removal service. I brought some home and cut it. Very dry. I'm not experienced but judging from the weight, appearance and difficulty to cut I'd say it was the equivalent to kiln dried lumber. I really want to practice with it and I need to know if there are special methods of working with dry wood, special gouges,etc.
Advice will be greatly appreciated. There is enough wood available to keep me busy for a very long time.
