I did a search, but it didn't answer my questions...
I just bought a bandsaw and have been playing with it on black locust firewood I had. I cut it into "lumber" and then used the bandsaw to cut a large spoon out of it. The firewood has been sitting split in a sheltered location for 2 years, so I figure it is pretty dry.
Is the yellowish green color permanent, or will it change over time?
I know it is extremely outdoor resistant, but I understand that is due to the tyloses it forms. Does it have any chemicals in it that might be toxic?
