Anyone turn avocado or orange? There is a very large amount available about 30-mins from home but thought I'd ask if it was worth the trip. Yeah, it's not far but at $6.25/gallon....

I have a avocado bowl from a blank someone mailed me from Hawaii. Not too difficult to turn, it is mostly a lighter colored wood. Pretty much all fruit trees are worth turning as most have great color variation in them. Not sure if avocado is a fruit but the wood is great to work with, can't speak to orange but would love to try some.

The orange wood I used for smoking some meat when I lived in Texas was very light colored and seemed light in weight, also. Of course that wasn’t likely great wood in bags of orange tree chips & chunks, either.
