After cutting thousands of boardfeet of the same local woods, (mainly mesquite), I felt like cutting something new. So I contacted a few people in central california to see if they had some claro walnut logs available. Sure enough they did. I ended up buying 7 nice logs. The biggest being about 32 inches in diameter and 8 feet long. It was the first time cutting claro walnut, I am very impressed. Compared to mesquite it cuts like butter and it seems relatively stable in the drying process. The figure is of course amazing. All the logs seem to have fiddleback or crotch figure.
