This stock was carved from a huge American Black Walnut blank. Too bad there wasn’t room in the blank to carve two stocks. “The blank was quartersawn and shows some fiddleback. I only sanded the stock to 120 grit and rubbed in one thin coat of tung oil. When the stock is finish sanded to at least 400 grit the fiddleback should show up a lot better. Too bad the maple slab I used to take the photos has voids and bark inclusions or I’d carve a stock from it. It’s destined to be a bench.
