Machines OK. Somewhat fuzzy, but can be sanded to a smooth
finish. Staining is uneven, you will need to use techniques
used on other blotchy woods (like pine). I haven't tried
dyes on aspen. It's not my favorite wood. I use it
mostly as a secondary wood when it won't be seen or
will be painted.
Interlocked grain and soft, light texture made it an ideal wood for cart
bottoms. Dents, doesn't split. Can be stained/dyed with techniques like
those used for soft maple to produce some lovely shimmer.
It'll bend any damn way it wants to once you start reducing big to little,
takes well to steaming, but springs back more than ash. Durability zero.
As board/batten siding out of contact with the ground, it'll weather to a
nice rustic look.

Other than the true stuff that D.G. Adams said, it rots easily, so
would not be very good to use outdoors.
