Looking for Something?

Re: 2"x2"x4" or longer walnut scraps

>Carole, I don't know if this will help you, but I just harvested a rather large (30" caliper) Black Walnut Tree. Most of the trunk section will yield some nice Bowl Blanks, and I could band saw cut some blanks in the size you are looking for. I am sure the blank prep process will yield some usable scraps, as it usually does. Of course, the wood is green, but it could be dried using the Dave Smith Alcohol Method. (Come to think of it, I should probably Anchorseal it before shipping to prevent checking, so I am not sure if the Alcohol process would work too well.) Just a thought for you to consider! :-)
