Weso6, I just sold some here in Texas for  $10 bft. I should have sold it for $13bft. but I quoted him a price from memory. Its hard to find here in Central Texas. PS he said he would have gladly paid $13 as it was beautiful. PSS the wifey was not happy that I sold it.  woodweasel

Oh yeah you were looking for a slabber a couple months back.  I know a kiln in Indy that regularly dries Walnut slabs.  I'm sure your slabs could join his to fill the kiln for a cycle.  Maybe too far for you?

Putting your location in your profile so it shows up in your posts would really help us answer questions.

Just got the walnut log cut up today. I ended up getting 5 pieces 3.5 inches thick .  They look amazing.   Bert Elliot from Highland,IL did a wonderful job I would recommend him to anyone.    We did hit a couple nails tho.

Just as the sun rises in the east, so too shall a walnut have nails.



I own my own small piece of the world on an 8 acre plot on the side of a mountain with walnut, hickory, ash and spruce.

End coating with two thick coats of Anchorseal is essential ASAP.

Oxalic acid will remove some or all of the iron stain...available in a hardware store.

I use Oxalic acid as a boat hull cleaner, I had not thought to use as a walnut cleaner.  I just sawed some walnut last week, hit 5 nails in one log so it has a lot of purple in it.  I will give it a try.

Most deck brightener is oxalic acid. It would be interesting to see what it does to walnut.  Maybe try on iron-stained WO too.

No ant nest either, you're lucky!  Glad you got it done.  Now your next question will be in a few years, how do I flatten the slabs?!

Be sure to rinse off the oxalic acid

Could PEG 1000 be used for stabilizing walnut slabs before drying ?
