    The wood is neat – but if you are using mostly hand tools this could be very frustrating.

    hard to split

    I have – the one thing that really makes this a challenge is that sweet gum is virtually unsplittable.  If you are working with logs, you may need to machine the wood rather than rive it.  I spent the better part of an afternoon with a wedge and a sweet gum tree one day and put more knicks in my sledge than the tree.
