$8.50? Wow, Black Walnut starts at $19.95/board foot for 4/4 near me - that’s kiln dried. Not sure how you price green wood (is that your $8.50 /BF?) I know green is a lot more fun to turn at 5” thick.Not a bad price... I figure $8.50 a board foot... so close to $40 if bought in a store. And I have enough walnut right now.
We have lots of native Black Walnut in Illinois and I’ve turned some non-native English Walnut folks have planted. Have never seen any Claro Walnut growing around here (not sure if it would survive in Northern IL. ? )That looks more like Claro Walnut and not Black Walnut.
I just looked it up real quick. I would assume they keep the prices current.$8.50? Wow, Black Walnut starts at $19.95/board foot for 4/4 near me - that’s kiln dried. Not sure how you price green wood (is that your $8.50 /BF?) I know green is a lot more fun to turn at 5” thick.

That is pretty stuff. And yes, that'll darken up nicely with some softer waves going through it.Mark -sounds good. I’ll send you a private message when I get home in a couple hours. Thanks!
Also - just showing — Cored 3 bowls from this larger chunk of the same Walnut today. 13”, 10” and 8”. I know some of it will fade, but cool colors.
Sounds good Mark @MarkRand1 -John....package arrived and thank you.
Yep. That works too. Was just thinking you probably have lower humidity(?) and warmer weather . We’re sitting at about 40 degrees and about 55% humidity today.What about waxing the ends?
