I have inherited a walnut stump from my late Grandfather. It was given to him by my Uncle about 25yrs ago. The stump is native to Missouri but has been in my Grandfathers garage in Denver for roughly 25yrs. This is my first experience with trying to get project wood from a stump so I don’t know much about the strategy of resawing it. The ends have not been sealed, as I see is recommended by many here. I hope the dry Colorado climate has kept it from being ruined by moisture. At first glance it looks OK…See below. I took these pics before I left Denver a few weeks ago, of course I left without measuring it. I estimate it is roughtly 20” x 20”. I will use my local hardwood shop to resaw it for me.
Thoughts, hints, suggestions on how to handle this stump? I’m excited about the procpects of making some small gifts for my father and his siblings out of this stump that belonged to thier dad…I’d be open to suggestions on what to do with the cut stock as well.
