Well, I started slicing up that blown over black walnut in my neighbor’s yard. Decided to start with the smaller limbs just to get a feel for it. First I used a draw knife to take off enough bark so the log wouldn’t roll on the band saw table. Then I free hand sliced it down the middle. After that I could put it up against the fence to get any thickness I wanted. Here are a couple of book matched pieces. Any tips or suggestions would be highly appreciated.
