Buckeye Wood?

Just asking if any one has used buckeye wood in a project. Buckeye trees seem to be more common in southern Michigan and Northern Ohio.
Don't quote me, but I think it is Aesculus Glabra, Horsechestnut family, Has a nut somewhat like an oak acorn, but completely encased, with a spiked hard shell. This is one of those "hard nut to crack". I think the origin of the Ohio State nickname.
Ruby Red Horsechestnut may be more common close relative.
Reason I ask: The tree bark / sap has unpleasant odor, does this odor carry on with harvested wood?

Phil asks:

Until it is dried it has a mildly nasty aroma. Once it is seasoned and dry, it is supposed to be odorless and tasteless.
Works well except for a tendency to twist in long splits. Often used for artificial limbs...really nice looking wavy grain in some pieces. Almost white, stain streaks in various shades of gray and tan.
