This has been an education in woodworking for me l’ve learned so much . I found that when you take your time doing projects with Walnut looking at the grain every day you can’t wait until its done , because when you put the finish on and the grain pops out you realize why you picked Walnut. Thank you lumber jocks for all the inspiration you send out by posting your projects and comments . Thanks for looking !

It’s cool. It is pleasant to look, but it is even more pleasant – to Sit down and doze off. Good luck.
