About to get a commission on a cabinet and I’m trying to sell the customer on black walnut. So I took one of the flitches I picked up a couple weeks ago and milled a bookmatched panel to give the customer a sneak peak at what they could have.

Check it out



A little jig I made to put a straight edge on it



I can’t wait to see what the rest of the limb will yeild


And put back in her home so not to get lost…...

I see a wolf in that grain pattern.

I can’t wait to see how the project turns out. Please keep us posted.
