    Never used it myself but others report it is a heavy smoke with bitterness. A small amount mixed with fruit wood can be good though. Dutch has a sticky on here. If you search "Woods for Smoking", there you will find a wealth of info.
     
  4. I have a lot of walnut on our property so I tried it and it was very bitter - glad I have so much wild cherry also!!

    I have used it a couple of times for a lamp table and then a dresser I made in school. Then even a grand father clock with some walnut in it. Smoking NO
