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.
