Has anyone worked with this evil pointed bush. I have a few of these on my property that are getting in the way of my disc golf course design. What would be some good uses of it. Any pictures of finished wood would be appreciated. If it isn't worth it its going to the bonfire pit.

Not too sure. Can't see what it looks like?

It's very hard wood. I've turned a few pieces, but don't have any pics of the finished projects. Very hard and dense. Makes great tool handles. I may have a piece or two yet to turn, and if I find one, the next mallet swap recipient (see the turning section) may get a hawthorne mallet.

BTW, if you do burn it, it burns very hot and long.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

I planted them around the perimeter of my back yard. Far better security than a fence! There's lots of it around the village but I don't recall seeing any which might have big enough stems that you could use in workable pieces. Burn, baby. Burn.
