Howdy Doug. I literally have hundreds of Walnut slabs (claro graft, black walnut) length would probably be a problem as most of mine are between 8-11 feet and 18-46” wide.

Feel free to give a ring or email if still interested.

Sawmillnc, by your handle I’d expect you to be in North Carolina. Is that true? I’d be interested in some black walnut burls, at least 6 inches long in at least one dimension. Please let me know.

Thanks!

I understand why you would want a live edge but why do you need the bark?

Unless it is harvested and sawn in late fall, early winter, the bark staying attached is going to be a problem.

Eric, Looks like he might be building a Junk-Yard Table. A Junk-Yard Table is much better than a Junk-Yard Dog since you don’t have to feed it.
