  • I got Walnut Pieces

    1-IMG_0007.JPG2-IMG_0008.JPG These 4Pieces are from the Slab of Wood that I didn't know the Kind of Wood it was. Phil thought it was Walnut and he was Right. It took a Chain Saw to cut it. It has no Walnut Smell , probably got washed out over the last 100 years. I see a lot of Cane and Stick Toppers in the Future. Merle

      Hi Joe, My Barber gave me that Piece over a Year ago. He had to carry it up to my Shop on the 2nd Floor , I couldn't lift it. it sat in my shop all this time Taking up room , I couldn't do anything with it because of it's weight . I was just about out of Walnut and now that's no longer a Problem. My Grandson had to use a Chain Saw to cut it , it is HARD. I thin the 2 pieces from the left are cut thru a Big Knot , that should make nice Grain, if I can cut it. Yep Joe , Bow Wow. Ha,Ha. Merle

        Nice rescue. I had a brother who would burn black walnut in his wood stove, until I told him what it was and took the remaining logs.

          Warms my heart to see somebody else's shop filling up with wood chunks which might be useful.
          You weren't standing on that piece of floor anyway.

                Hi RV, No I couldn't stand on that piece of Floor then but I can now. If my Little Band saw can cut it I'll make use of those pieces somehow . Seeing those end cuts gives a lot of Interest of what could be. Thanks For Showing your Interest. Merle

                  Those are some nice chunks of wood, Merle. For what it's worth, my little 9" Craftsman bandsaw with a 3/16 4TPI Timberwolf blade will cut 3.5 inch old walnut easily - it's slower than cutting the same thickness of basswood, but the blade does cut it just fine.

                    Beautiful find, Merle. I tried carving a piece of walnut my brother gave me and I gave up on it. Are you going to power carve it?

                      Hi Claude, I always use Timberwolf Blades and I have a 1/4 " Blade on now so that should do it. My thickest piece is 5 " thick but think it will still cut it. Thanks Claude for your Input it gives me Confidence . Merle

                        Hi Arthur , I tried to Carve Walnut at first but as you did I gave it up as a lost cause. But I had Walnut that I wanted to use so I went to Power Carving and that is the only way I'll do Walnut . The Effort that you put into working with Walnut ends up with a Beautiful Piece of Wood and Hope your Carving Enhances the finished piece. Keeps me Trying . Thanks Arthur for your Commenting. Merle

                          Great looking wood Merle, I see plenty of possibilities in those. Enjoy my friend.

                            Hi Bob, I think their is enough Walnut to last me thru my Carving Days. When the Barber gave me this Slab of Wood he didn't know the kind of Wood is was , I think he will be surprised when I tell him that it is Walnut. I just asked him if he had any more Walnut like he gave me before and he had none left. Now I don't need anymore I got enough. Thank you for Ciommenting. Merle

                              Just for all of the Walnut owners - wonderful for all of you. Just a point of pain to avoid. The chips/saw dust are danger of life to a Horse. It will dissolve their Hoofs. So don't give it to your grand children for their horses or pony ! Really bad in a stall.
