My company is starting a project in CLT that involves removing some Poplar, Walnut & other trees. The property is an Historic Site and the Curator wants to have some bowls, spoons & possibly other utensils made from the wood. I explained that bowl turnings usually had to cure for up to 1 year before finishing & subject to checking. They are okay with that. As they have a very limited budget, they wanted to trade wood for the work. I cannot negotiate for them, but if you would be interested in doing some of this type thing, PM me with contact info to forward.
