Right now I’m into my black walnut period. Two years ago we trimmed the black walnut tree in the backyard and all that wood is now nice and dry for turning and small projects
After bandsawing some thin black walnut boards I had to come up with a project because the crotch grain was soooooo nice. So I decided to make myself a business card case. I got tired of looking at all the dirty, dog-eared business cards in my wallet and it’s a poor first impression to the customer. I hope this case will impress them. The first picture is a shameless self-promotion, the second is the back and the third is the front. Note the inserted 2011 penny. The pictures do not do the grain justice.
More black walnut projects to come.
