    Went to mill today and got walnut burl cut up. Size range is 1.75-6" thick. Just a bit of figure.

    @Mike1950 I will pass. If you decide to put some in your kiln I would be interested.

    It will go in kiln. I have a few that want it green.
    Walnut gives up it's moisture reluctantly. These were taken out of ground a few years ago and i bet MC is the same as day trees were cut down These will probably be stickered and covered so our dry hot summer does its thing then inro kiln. The thick stuff will be probably sold green.

    Wow. That was a great way to slab those mike. Those should be left alone and not cut up!

    One way to look at it. I have a 4" thick mate to last one. It will make beautiful bowls. To each his own.

    Mike, those are some cool pictures, might want to share the graft line one with 4-H or some friends.

    After you sell those beauties, if you have some small scraps left for sale please let me know. I have an onion burl sample of black walnut but no other of walnut. I like having a bit of edge to show the spikes, and of course if it has sapwood and heartwood is just icing on the cake.

    Reminder, I was also hoping to buy a 'Black ash' burl sample from you sometime...

    I will put together a package- Thanks for ash reminder- I had forgot. The graft always amazes me. growth lines do not line up. I plan to take some and make a 2 wood coved box with one wood if that makes sense.
