You sure you have the spelling right?

Carrotwood...

SS-AGR-165/AG111: Natural Area Weeds: Carrotwood (Cupaniopsis anacardioides)

As for woodowrking value...

See the 5th post. I'd say if it's available go for it!

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

I'm not familiar with it, but... I have an idea.

It is a Tamarind. I read that Tamarinds are a hardwood that is used to make furniture. Of course just being in a family does not mean that it has the same qualities. just the guilt by association method, but possible.

I've tried making boards out of Douglas maple found growing wild here in the NW (mostly a shrub). It has never worked but the wood makes beautiful turnings. You never know unless you try.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
