Someone told me I have a barn full of old wood, including cucumber wood. I've never heard of cucumber wood before. Can anyone give some background info about it like what kind of tree it might have come from? I'm from NW PA. Thanks.
See the link for the 'cucumber magnolia tree' common in Western NY:
Its funny that you mentioned that I am from NWPA also and I just had a few trees cut down at my cottage in findley lake and one of them happened to be a cucumber. Rather than cutting it up we have a 40 foot log that we are going to get cut into boards. I am also curious to hear more aobut its woodworking properties and if it is worth our time or if i should just cut it into firewood.
Most loggers mix it with popular. I'm from Nwpa as well. I have a lt40h Woodmizer portable sawmill. I recently found a buyer that pays 530 a thousand for cucumber uppers. This is only one place I checked, but it doesn't seemed to be worth much. My email is [email protected] for any further questions.
