It’s been a while since I last posted didn’t want to get out of the habit. Actually I started a new real job July 1st and it’s taken awhile to get squared away. I have been working with the landowner on this tree for 6 months and finally got the city permits and neighborhood approval. The tree is a Black Walnut tree plant around 1920 55” diameter at the base narrows to 44” at 4’ up and the crotch is over 60” wide but will only yeild 74” to 80” lenght slabs but super wide and awesome grain. The two twin upper trunks are 24” diameter and 14’ and 12’ long respectively tapering to 18” and 20”. The way the ground is humped up I’m pretty sure there is a large underground burl but will wait till the develope the property and have access toa backhoe to recover it.Best to all the LJ’s and keep on making beautiful things I need all the inspiration I can get.
