I am just about to start dimensioning some plainsawn, live edge walnut slabs.
I am building a coffee table and do not require the live edge, but I have a question:
Some of these pieces are book matched and I was initially thinking of keeping the lighter sapwood on the slab and when I laminated the top it would have looked nice with the darker heartwood. The top will be made from 4 of these pieces (if I include the sapwood) or 6 pieces if I only include the heartwood.
So, so I keep the sapwood or get rid of it? I’m planing now but will not cut the sapwood off unless i hear from you guys saying that would be a bad idea.
Thanks so much!
