Went to mill today and got walnut burl cut up. Size range is 1.75-6" thick. Just a bit of figure.
@Mike1950 Mike what is the moisture content of the Walnut Burl? I may be interested.
It has stopped growing. . It is fresh cut. I assume very wet.
What would game call and pot call blanks run?
@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.
Very cool graft line in some of these. English-black. Lighter half moon on left is english
Are you selling the graft line pieces now? I am interested if you are.
Yes- any and all are for sale now. I will picture and set a few asides as I unload.
52x21x 1.75 wet to see graft and figure.
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.
This piece is 5 x21 x18 it will .make 4 5x5x18 burl blanks.
That is some crazy cool wood.
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.
That will be cool....!!!
I NEED walnut burl. Whatcha got left?
