I had the tree in my front yard removed yesterday (the townhouses in my row are having this done after the roots of the tree at the end of the street got into their water pipes). I kept some of the trunk in 30" sections. Does anybody know if sweetgum is useful for guitars? All I know about this wood is that it supposedly spalts nicely if you leave it outside for around a year. It would be nice to have a guitar made from my tree in a few years after spalting and then drying. Anybody have any advice on spalting? Do I just throw it out in the yard? Protect it from rain? Leave it directly on the ground?
