I never hear of anyone making something from apple wood. Is there a
reason for this? Or does the general term "fruit wood" include apple? I
have a friend chopping down a large apple tree (don't know species) and
he's offered it to me. (More out of aversion to hauling it to the dump
than a desire to do me a favor, I'm sure.) Once the logs are roughly
planked and seasoned I'd have thought they could be useful. But I defer
to those who know.
Sheesh. Back to basics again.
1. It's wood. It's free. That means it's FREE WOOD (You can skip to 2
if the term "free wood" doesn't sink in.). Tell the nice man you'll be
happy to do him a favor, take the wood, run away it very real fast, ask
questions later - "after" the wood is well hidden.
2. If you don't want it, send it to me, and it'll count as a sacrifice
from you to the Woodworking Gods. Trust me, they'll give you an attaboy
3. Yes, it's a fruit wood, it's apple. Long history of use. Like has
been said, there's not a lot out tere, you usualy don't get large
pieces, it often tends to twist while drying. Read 4.
4. A bit of googling should give you a lot more.
5. Re-read 2. Repeat as necessary.
