I am always looking for unique material to use in my shop. Black Walnut is my favorite and most of my customers love Walnut. I sell more items made using Walnut than any other wood. I was able to land this stack of Walnut, these are Black Walnut live edge slabs.
I purchased all that the lumber mill had, six pieces, wish they had more but I was a little late. Each piece is 7 foot long, 5/4 inch thick and ranges from 14 to 18 inches wide. As you can see it’s all very beautiful. The moisture content of these boards is very high, around 14%, so I would be able to make anything with these for about 6 months.
Do you like Black Walnut? What is your favorite wood?
Enjoy your evening!

I do like that black walnut – very rich in color. I just joined Instagram last weekend. I think I am following you but would need to check in case I am not.

Hopefully this takes you to my Instagram page.
got it! thank you!
Your welcome! It is amazing how many social media sources are out there!
I agree, I like the Instagram a lot!
Beautiful. Walnut is a beautiful wood. Just right for carving and in fact can take intricate carving. In Kashmir, both the Indian and pakistani side, a lot of furniture pieces are hand carved walnut wood. Grows profusely up in Kashmir. I have a little side table may father had commissioned an I inherited. Shall post picture tomorrow. Your piece took me down memory lane.
I like Camphor Laurel. It has wonderful grain patterns, and smell divine! My son (a dentist) bartered some needed dental work with a chap here in the tropics, for a slab of it, and he made me an extremely beautiful dining room table from it. It’s so heavy, the next cyclone we have, I’ll just camp under it. 🙂
Hey Yvonne, wow, not many people know about Camphor Laurel! It’s native to China but has been introduced to other countries. It is very beautiful wood, anytime I have seen it was heavy in figure and character. You are right, it is very heavy wood, I wish I could find a source for it here in the US. 🙂
I do love walnut – we had a piano made with walnut when I was a child, and I loved the effect when polished up. It had relief work at the front, backed with red silk. I really love all the things you make with wood Michael. You have very good taste!
Cathy, the piano sounds beautiful! Never seen a piano made of walnut, here most of the time they are made of cherry!! 🙂
I love the grain in that wood! That’s beautiful.
thank you Maureen!!! Love your post about the burgers! 🙂

I like walnut but I think my favorite is tiger or bird’s eye maple. You don’t see too much of either of those anymore though. Have a great weekend!
Tiger and Birds Eye Maple are definitely beautiful, especially when the Birds Eye Maple is the butter color!! It’s very hard to find. Enjoy your weekend!
My dad would be in hog heaven over that wood – it IS just beautiful!
