This is a pie safe that was made for a woman at our church. The walnut was over 12’ long and over 15 inches wide. It had an estimated age of 40-50 years, having been stored in a barn. This is the type of walnut you only see once in a lifetime. I only wish I had more of it.

Nice safe. Actually, walnut boards like that are still available from the more serious wood sellers out there. I got a bunch from A&M Wood Specialty.
