Loved your article.

One more "useful" fact about the Hackberry you might not know. As a woodturner who likes to go beyond just making plain bowls, I often try steaming the wood to bend a handle onto a vessel that has been turned, such as a cup or vase. Guess which wood is the best for this purpose. Yes, the Hackberry since it bends fairly easily without snapping and makes a lovely end product. Thank you for your column.

Oh, I didn't know that, thanks so much for telling me!
Now I'll be saving Hackberry wood.

I'd love to see photos of your projects. My brother who still lives in SE KY turns bowls and does various other things with it. I'll be sure to mention the pliability of the hackberry.
