Just some junk walnut from the wood pile. Green it was. Still have a half a truck load. Hope you like it.

This is gorgeous, Mike. Every time I see projects like this I regret not having a lathe in my shop. Your piece of firewood “turned” out nicely. I really like the sapwood accents that you left in it. This gives the piece some nice contrast.

Mike: You have walnut in your wood pile. What kind of woodworker are you.

Nice job on the scrap firewood.

Is any walnut actually junk? Nice use of so called junk. As you may have picked up, I’m rather partial to walnut. I’d like to see what you do with premium wood. Keep it up, BTKS

Now fellas before you go accusing me of walnut debachery, I did’nt say it was my firewood. My cousin called and said he cut down a walnut tree in September, knowing I liked to turn he asked if I wanted some, well to me that meant the whole tree. Of course he burns wood, and to him that meant a half dozen well chosen pieces. Well I got a good layer on the botton of my 3/4 ton Ram Charger but I’ll turn something for his wife to make things cool. Thanks for the complements, of course I’m no trifern, but hey, who is?

I don’t put debauchery past you, but that bowl is most definitely not walnut debauchery. Nice job!
