    Magnolia Wood

    What are good uses for Magnolia wood?

    I suppose it would make nice bowls and pens but is it also suitable for furniture projects?

    Anyone here used it in projects? Got any photos?

    I may be able to get some tomorrow, not sure how much yet. Don't want to get much of it if I can't use it. Probably about 12-14" at the butt end and probably 12' length.
    You can't work without tools. So many tools so little money.

    It's a light wood with dark lines.
