Turning

Subject:
Re: Magnolia (a/k/a Cucumber)?

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I don't know anything about turning it but I know about it as lumber. It used to be common to slip it into bundles of poplar. I would detect it when planing as being a bit more dense. Otherwise it was about like poplar.

The last log price list I saw from a mill admonished loggers to not include Cucumber amongst the poplar logs.
