Does anyone have any experience using palm trees for lumber?

From contributor T:
Yes, I have sawed cabbage palm (sabel). Only if someone came to me with a whole lot of money would I do it again. A band blade on my mill was dull after two boards in a 12 foot log. It's like cutting sandstone. If the guy got them dried, and if they stiffened up, they would make fine surfaces. It can be pretty stuff. I don't want any more of it.
