Once it's had a few cycles, it's not bad, just worse than the common
cabinet woods. Trouble comes in the growth habit of the tree, which
produces grain reversals. Elm is notoriously difficult to split for this
reason, but for the same reason it's less predictable in movement in
response to moisture change.
Buy the wood, or sell it. It's pretty, durable, and certainly useable
with good solid wood technique.
Yes, but you are saying "elm" and he is saying "yellow elm". I
took a quick look, and the only reference I found to "yellow elm" was a
couple of antique Chinese stools, and the wood was named as yellow elm.
So, maybe he is actually alking about elm, and possibly something else.
