Walnut is my favorite, too. You’ve convinced me to copy this one! Great looking finish,too.

Nice looking project woodnut. I’m with you as far as walnut goes. Sapwood and all, to me it give the wood character and contrast. You’re right about the planer. I just finished planing a bunch of walnut and you never know what you’re gonna get…..Sounds like Forest Gump. Good job anyway. jockmike

how wonderful!
I would have a hard time picking one—each one has such a unique design in the wood.

Great looking project. Nice job. Can you update the tags to say walnut and magazinne rack. It will help finding it later.

Totally missed these first time around! Nice job. I have the same wonder about what the planer and a clearcoat finish will reveal from the rough milled lumber.
