Black Walnut Stumps
« on: April 12, 2020, 03:40:41 PM »
I recently found two black walnut trees in a dump site.  I have a mill so I am going to saw the logs but I was curious as to whether or not the stumps are valuable.  One is 22 inches and has five large roots and the other is about 14 inches and has three roots. 

Just curious.

In the old days gun stock manufacture folks bought stumps for the grain, have not heard anything on them for years, but some beautiful stuff come out of walnut stumps.

It could be a bust and it could be an awe experience bonanza.
Only one way to find out.
Could be a nice Sunday afternoon experiment.
Wish you the best.

Its a shame. I know the composite stocks and coated barrels are more functional but to me a figured walnut stock and deeply blued barrel is a work of art that shoots plenty well enough and worth the little extra care to keep it up. Not many new ones built these days.
