"One Man's Treasure .." Turned Stool Project #2: The Storms of June Bring Opportunity

2217 days ago by mike | 2 comments »

A tree expert (easy to find those here in Oregon) told me they’re English walnut grafted onto Black walnut rootstock and were probably planted in the 1930’s.

The basic materials for the turned frame components are likely to be free and might even be in your firewood pile at this moment.But first a little background.
