Walnut slabs
« on: September 12, 2018, 10:50:18 AM »
Question for you slab sellers.  I have a couple of live edge walnut slabs that I am now ready to put out on Marketplace.  I have them flat and sanded.  Would you recommend leaving them as is or puting a clear finish on to help show the rich color?

Leave them as is,all builders have their own preferences for finishes and would not want to have to strip yours off. Are your slabs dry enough to build with?

You can always wipe it with water real quick to bring out the grain, give an idea of finished product. Then fan dry that piece as not much should absorb.

My friend who had the mill before me used to keep mineral spirits in a spray bottle to spray on slabs when showing them to prospective buyers.
