Last year I fell into a good deal on some walnut. Thanks, Dan!
Today I got off my can and got started on a project I’ve been kicking around for some time. I cut off the split end on that piece on the left in the pic above. I used a handheld circular saw. I know, no pics = didn’t happen. I didn’t think about a blog until I was into it.
It had a bow in it, so I cut it pretty much in half before jointing.
I have to get the vehicles out to use the garage tools.
It’s worth what I gotta do to do it. I wound up with 6 spindle blanks, and very little waste. I’m still waiting for the right project to come along for the rest.
2" x 39" 2” x 28”
2" x 17" 1 & 3/4 ” x 12” 1 @ 1 & 3/4” x 11”
And now for the hard part. I’m going to let them sit in the basement for a few weeks before I do anymore. Just to see how much they’re going to mopve on me. I don’t expect a lot. Those slabs were cut more than 10 years ago.
I only have 1 project in mind. I hate to stop when I get going on a project that I really want to do. I think about it going back and forth to work, and spend every minute I can on it.I love walnut.
I hope your day was as good as mine.
-- what a long, strange trip it's been...
