Id make stickers or cribbing or something like that. It turns an ugly gray when exposed. I suppose it could be ok, but thats up to you. Always worth experimenting.

Heck yeah, why not?  Thats what Id do.  Then youll know whats inside a magnolia. Itll have a large pith, so get rid of that.  Whether you like it or not, it can be used for something. Magnolia does attract metal though, so BOLO for that.
