Get a lathe and try turning Christmas ornaments and candle sticks. After the wood settles to 8%Moisture Content (which could take a year or more sitting indoors), you might be able to get some straight pieces for small picture frames.
BTW, if you get a lathe, you could become addicted. Nothing more relaxing than watching concentric circles and letting your chisels and gouges flow with the wood. You been warned.
