Walnut....
« on: May 07, 2019, 08:25:26 PM »
First off :)  Hi!  It's been a while!  I've been working through medical issues and waiting for the spring (which is long since here now) and hoping to get back to milling though I'm a little unsure how much I can do this year.

Anyway, here we go....

I've milled up a fair share of walnut but none that looked like this.  I didn't expect to see so much light 'sapwood' vs the typical dark heartwood of walnut.  Usually there was a lot more dark heartwood (or at least that's what I though it was) than this.  The main beam of this tree was 22" in diameter and the second was slightly smaller though I don't have the size yet.

Is it black walnut?  Or perhaps an english?  Thoughts?

I think the answer is that this walnut just happens to have a lot of sapwood. 

I wonder how it would look leaving it and making a table with live edge slabs.

That is what I would have said.  Can tell for certain when the leaves come out.
