276336 the_tinker <tinker@z...> 2022‑09‑18 Question on working green wood
For the collective wisdom of the list (Ok, mostly Scott).

Is there a fundamental difference between working a true sapling versus 
a fresh new growth branch from an old tree?

I need to split a 1-1/4" diameter green sapling down about 18" and then 
loop the split end back on itself in a tight loop.

Think I will saw into the stick half way and split the waste away. May 
still need to boil it to get as tight a loop as I want,

Thinking hickory but will gladly entertain suggestions.
