    I have a very beautiful bowl made from hackberry that Rick Hutcheson sent to me. I sure wouldn't throw that stuff away if you can find any use for it at all.

        Check out Rick Hutcheson's website. I'm sure you'll see pictures of the hackberry bowls. They're light tan with dark streaks. Just Google Rick and you'll find him.

          I LOVE Hackberry! ...especially if it has gray streaks going through it. Hard wood, but cuts really nice on the scroll saw, and sands up well too.
