Black Walnut

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?

Wood Gloat

walnut slabs

Ok, I’m not generally one to gloat but my chances to gloat are very far and few between. Plus this is too good not to share. Who would drive two hours one way for a board? I would! I did and I am glad I did! I managed to score 200+ board feet of air dried walnut. Boards are all 5/4 inch thick, and are 8 inches to over 16 inches wide.

Anyways…I just wanted to share a few shots of the live edge slabs of walnut I brought home yesterday.

Once I check the boards for nails I will run them through the planner. All of this walnut lumber will be dark brown in color with pretty grain quality and nice figuring. There are a couple pieces that have a nice crotch with a lot of figuring.

Next project will be to run these though the planner. I can’t wait to get started and see what comes of these beautiful boards! I will post again soon with pictures after getting a couple boards thru the planner.
