Dodgy, I just happen to have a 12 inch 10 foot log of holly in my log pile. Lightening kill so it may be somewhat different. No idea what to do with it. If you can use it, it yours for free. Heck, I would  even saw it up for you..

It will stain very quickly and be gray, not white.  I have a couple of decent holly logs, but they are still growing.  They are being stored on the stump  ;D.

Dodgy, there is no way this "Chinese Holly" could ever be mistaken for American holly, unless it were covered with paint. The color and pattern are totally different, both fresh and after being exposed to the air for a while.

Too bad. It's hard to judge color from pictures, but the cant looked pretty white from my vantage point. I am on the hunt for some American holly after seeing some woodworkers on another forum gloating about getting it for "only" $9/BF :o

I have an eye on a nice 12" one. Make sure you study up on it-- I hear it is best with holly to follow these three rules-- 1. Cut in dead of winter. 2. Mill immediately after cutting. 3. Kiln dry as quickly as possible after milling. Not only that, but the drying is the trickiest part, and I don't know how to do it, so I won't pretend.

Here is a twig from my mystery holly.

 

 

Notice how it seems to have opposite leaves, unlike normal hollies. However, the leaves, in size, color, texture, etc. are similar to American Holly leaves.

And oh, that is not its own wood as a background. That is pine.
