Saw this when I googled walnut bark. I have some pieces I picked up and have never seen anything like it, nor can I find anything online. It’s walnut, and it looks as if the bark was planed down to create this cool pattern. Most of it is almost as hard as the wood itself. I quickly sprayed urethane over the one piece that is darker to see how it would look and WOW. My thoughts are to make a jewelry box lid out of it and the rest being just walnut. I did plane the edges and cut it down to the size I want with no flaking or other issues.

Any ideas of what I need to do to protect it from possibly falling apart in the long run? I’ve seen a few things, but just wondering if anyone has seen this and worked with it before.

Thanks in advance for any help :)
