I have worked with holly a great deal. It dries very quickly, too quickly when green, and I have had a piece during a lunch break on the lathe. It is best if harvested during the winter, slabbed out thick and sealed with commercial sealer before letting it get near a lathe. It tends to create a blue-green stain. Make sure the pith is left in the firewood pile! Phil
