I'm starting what will, for me, be a long build: a walnut slant top desk. I went to Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago and bought some wide 5/4 walnut for the sides, top and writing surface. I took them to a friend's millwork shop yesterday and had them dressed on his big equipment. Thought I'd share the big board with you. It's curly black walnut 16" X 1 1/16 (dressed) X 10'. It's a beauty.
Two more boards. These are 13" wide by 7 1/2" long:
Now I've got to decide how to cut them up.
