Yes it is for sale. Not sure what it is worth. Send me an offer. Also still have 2 more slabs from the same tree.

The first Walnut Slab – measured 71-1/2” at the widest point and was only 54” tall (the center of the walnut hollow or rotten). It had random metal pieces though out the slab (Canon Ball shrapnel ??).

The second Walnut Slab – 102” long, 36” at Narrowest Point and 53” At Widest point, 3” Thick, medium to high figuring. This slab could be used as a desk top, bar top, dining table top, or coffee table.
