Yeah I'm starting to rethink this. I had worked a small amount a few years back and thought I would revisit it. Given the info you all have shared and what I got from other sources I will probably pass on it now. I'll probably look into some hackberry or something similar. I was looking for something I could pick up cheap and dry myself to build a few things in a couple of years.
