My local paper Sunday in the home section had a piece on woven wood walls and the picture they used showed one made with walnut. It’s the second of the small pictures at this URL

Anybody have an idea how that was done?

Thanks,

I would guess it’s thin veneers glued up in a jig. Walnut does not bend very well so the core might be something more flexible with a outer skin of walnut. It might also include steaming the walnut.

Thanks, Jim. I may have to experiment with a smaller project, like maybe a walnut woven place mat. Never done any wood steaming before. I wonder, too, how thin to cut that walnut, 1/8 of an inch?
