The nightstand I made with the friend who helped me harvest 1,000 BF of this Walnut from MQB Quantico. That wood is going to yield a lot of nice projects.

Yeah, I’m jealous of that much walnut too!! Hand cutting mortises last night, I realized just how pertinent it is that I have a workbench with a good vise on it. Considered Walnut workbench but that would be an expensive bench. Now if someone with 1000BF wanted to make a charitable donation….I’m kidding of course. ;)

Great looking table.

That slab has a great heartwood to sapwood ratio. Nice table.

I think the top was about 2.25 inches thick after all was said and done.
