Re: Use of walnut for bench top?...

Paul in NJ
If you don't feel like it needs a higher use, go ahead. There is probably going to be a surplus with thousand cankers disease. You could always bleach to make it lighter. If you put the bench by a sunlit window it will lighten pretty quick. A plus is that walnut is pretty stable when drying. All that I have air dried had very little twist or cup.
