Eye catching Walnut
« on: July 03, 2015, 03:50:47 PM »
Member SPD748 (Lee) came down from North Carolina this morning and brought down 2 Walnut logs to be sawn.

These logs had been laying for a good while and the bark was falling off all over the place.
Unbelievable slabs and lumber came out of these logs. In fact I haven't seen logs with so little sap wood in a long time. We had several black heart slabs around 25 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches thick.
What's Lee gonna do with it......he said he would stack, sticker and just look at it.  :)
Sounds like a plan to me.  ;D....it was good to get together with Lee again and catch up on mill talk.  :)

Walnut that's been sitting around in log form for several years seems to have better color and visual "depth". Don't know why. I've heard it / read it from many people, and seen it myself of a few occasions.

What a day! Many thanks to David for sawing those Walnut logs for me. I wanted to get as wide of a slab as possible and I knew David's Woodmizer was just what the doctor ordered. My Dad would be proud to know that I have friends like David around to help when needed!

Nice slabs.
Amazing how well walnut ages.  I cut some walnut last weekend for a guy.  They too where sitting around forever and the sap wood pretty much turned to mush.  The boards turned out to be spectacular, nice deep black.  He also brought along two root balls that we made some turning pieces and gun stock blanks.

Well, I got the logs on the deck a little before sundown, had amazing catfish, all by my lonesome, (not whining)  just saying and thought I would at least get the first one opened up, not the best of the batch but the longest, so wanted it on the bottom of the stack of course,
 

  

  

  

 
back at it in the morning, then the ribs are going on, so Happy Independence Day to All, and thank God for our military troops!

Oh my, what beautiful lumber. Those of us who saw logs are really lucky. We get to see lumber when it looks it's very best....damp, right off the log.

Nice, I haven't seen walnut like that in a long, long time, we just cant get it here.
Pretty stuff.
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

Walnut is one tree I have growing all over my land.
This is one chunk I used to make my table in my cabin.
