Butternut

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I don't have any experience working butternut. We occasionally got a piece in packs of walnut, no doubt slipped in there to be rid of it at walnut prices. I don't recall ever using a board for anything so we must have sold it. I recall it being noticeably lighter in weight and color. Where might it be preferred to walnut?
