Ever turn any Crepe Myrtle?

We've got several clumps of them. One was planted in '62 and one of those trunks is well over a foot thick and about a dozen or more of the ones around it are 6" up to 12". I've never seen crepe myrtle mentioned though is it any good to turn?

Can you post a picture? I can't answer your question b/c I don't know what that stuff is so it's just curiosity. If you have time I'd much appreciate it.
