Thought you all would like to see the walnut piece I just resawed. I’ve been saving this piece for a long time for the right project. I’m going to use half of it for a jewelry box top. I’ll probably use the other half for something similar. I bought the walnut from an estate sale years ago. I’ve used most of the wood on a Greene & Greene bedroom set and a few small pieces.

Roarchack blot on wood. If you squint just right it looks like some demon sticking it’s head through a fork in a tree.

Hazy looking eyes, and it’s maw has a beak like a bird of prey, and there is a second pair of eyes inside the mouth.

Freaky looking bookmatch.

If it’s just the 2 pieces you should keep that one together, one sided it will just look like some wiggles, not nearly as interesting.

I agree The top isn’t big enough for book matched. Most of the pieces would be wasted. Maybe I’ll put it aside for something bigger.

Oohhh yeah, I want to rub some tung oil on that. Hey baby, want to see my angle grinder?

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. LOL

Lovely patterns in that wood – it deserves to be something special. Be sure to post your completed project.

You should be ashamed of yourself for showing us wood that looks that beautiful and we can’t have any of it.
Just like a centerfold!

Bookmatching meets spread eagling. You’re a dirty man, in a good way.
