This is some claro black walnut that was cut down in California. It was my first tree I had milled down… a lot of heavy lifting initially untill I found a rancher with some heavy machinary to do the milling. Very nice looking slabs I got out of this. More to come. Now comes the air drying process and wait. I have learned so much from LJ’s. Thanks for all your help, check out my blog on Black Walnut Tree, good adise I got from everyone. The majority of the boards I had cut down were 1+” slabs with some 2” ones as well. Lots of sap wood(light colored walnut) since the tree was only 20” diameter inside bark at the base smaller diameter on up. Looking to find a more mature tree eventually.
