I agree with ghost. I picked up quite a bit of Sweet Gum logs off of Craigslist and I think it turns wonderfully. I also haven't had much issues with warping or cracking but maybe that's due to the high humidity here in Houston.

got my load

I picked up my load of "sweet gum" yesterday, and a good size load it was. Just about filled my pickup.
All sizes from 8" to 2' long and 3" to 18" in diameter.

If any of you lived in the Daytona Beach area, I'd love to share my load. (no charge)

I was very surprised to see that some of the wood was starting to crack by the time that I got home. From a standing tree to about 4 hours later. Wow.

Thank you for the replies.
Dick
