Cabbage palm wood?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever done anything with cabbage palm? I've got loads of rounds up to 18" of cabbage palm and I have no idea what to do with it! Does it even burn? Dont want it sat about to season to find it's almost fire proof 😂

I don't know much other than its kinda fibrous rather than wood like in the traditional sense  .

Good for homebrewing your own alcohol 🤪Europeans used the plant to make alcohol, and the often fearsome brews were relished by whalers and sealers.

No different than Maple or Birch Sap alcohol.

Of course pointless pointing this out when it’s been felled, Legless. Still pissed up I see?

Just following your lead Legless. :)  Two can play your game, I'll just need to get drunk as you to be on a level pegging. 

 

You'd not want me to highlight all the the times you mention me unsolicited wee man. You might not know how often you do so but you'll be in for a hiding. :)

 

And you keep PMing me too. You're a horny old man thats for sure. :D xxx

Not sure how I could have potted it up to be honest. Would have weighed a tonne! 

 

I wonder if I can run it through the chipper and stick the chips in my 50L brewers 😂 Screenshot_20210530-225001.thumb.png.240784bb0ea44cbd591a8cd6b486380f.png
