I got sick of smelling walnut stink by the time I finished Darlene's countertop. The sawdust piled up in the collards and made them a little sick. I wonder if collards are allergic to walnut. ::) :snowball: :snowball: :snowball:

I cut a double leaner for my neighbor..  one side was hung in a tree.. I got the half that would make a sawlog.. he just wanted firewood.  So got my half home.. cut out the saw log.. bucked the rest.. then split it.. I was enjoying that fresh black walnut smell.

It started w/ just a cough..  the next couple days I felt like I had the flu.. extreme headaches, chills, respiratory problems.. I was close to going to the ER at one point.   At first I didn't make the connection because I've sawed black walnut plenty of times.. and used it in woodworking projects. 

It was sitting there for an hour sucking up the that smell while running the splitter.  Jugelone is concentrated in the roots.. I had read that the bark also produces it when injured. 

Edit: I had to edit this post.. I hit something on my keyboard.. and it went all crazy and scrambled the post and submitted it.
