All -

Hopefully I have posted this in the correct category! I have about 20 slabs of black walnut that are approximately 14 inches wide, 4 feet long and 2 inches thick (it has been air drying for about 20 years). I want to have it re-sawn in half in order to use it to make some hope chests. I live near Annapolis Maryland. Does anyone know where I could have it re-sawn at a reasonable price or how I could research who would do it for me?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I just had my first experience with black walnut. You should be posting this under “wood gloat” ;)
