Karson>>>>Nice table! I am experimenting with some Yaupon Holly. I live South of Houston, Texas and have tons of it on my acreage but never thought much of it. About a year ago I cut down some stands with three and four inch diameter trunks and only about three foot in height. I remember wondering about it as the stuff was dense and hard. Recently I returned to the woods where I threw the pieces in a pile on the ground with some Pecan limbs. There were the Yaupon Holly pieces still there and dried, no rot and hard stuff! I kept a few decent pieces to use as accenting and found the wood mostly white to light tan in color. Next time I cut more down I will bring it to the shed to dry!
