Pine, I'll stop. I'm just oakin' around. But if you allow fir this kind of thing, he maple it again
I can't wait to see when he gets down to the root of the matter and learn what the next step is.
This thread might branch out in many different directions.
Oh, and don't worry about what Blowtorch says. His bark is worse than his bite.
So wood I, like to
I was glad to see that it wasn't about "The Tree"
The Honduran mahogany tree whose wood has become something beyond wood, a mythical substance with the promise of . . . . . damn near anything and everything
In all seriousness though, that defiantly is some nice walnut.
Don't have the slightest idea . I suggest that you resolve this yourself because I can be of no use .
I wood have posted that joke, but I wasn't quick enough. What a sap.
You are so correct . Where the wood is clear , it has virtually no runout at all . I sure am glad that I made the connection .
Short story . I am doing a backstop for the local Little League . Existing posts needed pulled and I went on the search for a local farmer that had a loader .... The first place that I stopped , I met a man that said he couldn't do it , but he put me in touch with someone else . I called that guy and we made arrangements for the backstop . After I hung up , I remembered seeing logs at his place . This is across the road from where I have been working and was the farm where the wind had blown his one barn apart this summer . I called again and asked about the logs and he told me that there was some walnut . He was having some smaller sections milled , but still had some left including this trunk . I went out to look and this is what I found . We talked and I ended up with the log . Had it not been for the backstop , I never would have asked him about the wood . Guess it was meant to be . Oh yeah , this wood will be air dried .
Perfectly fine for firewood , but this ain't no stinking firewood .
I have a dumb phone . I have never written or sent a text . I do call people when necessary .
Paint the ends Quick!!! Or you'll lose a lot of lumber to end checking and cracks. And I would go ahead and resaw to 2.5 inch thick slabs (if you're going to make bodies) so it will dry faster. You've quartered it to begin with, so it should dry relatively flat.
I'm one of the last people on earth with no cell phone. I'm doin' just fine.
I don't use paint . I am currently using Anchorseal , but I do prefer Rockler Green Wood Endgrain Sealer . Either way , they both are Latex products . Thank you for your concern . I have been doing this for quite some time . The majority of the clear product will be reasawn into acoustic sides and backs because it should be .
The 3' sections , end cut and non clear section have been loaded on my truck . Tomorrow , I will unload them and it will be time for retrieving the crotch section . Did I mention that I consider this to be fun ?
I hope you're going to make some more quarter sawn billets for backs, maybe tops, and sides for acoustics. That is some mighty fine walnut, and should make some great acoustic guitars.
Of course it will . Please reference post #34 . Anyway , I have some Black Walnut here from a previous tree that produced some of the best that I have ever seen . Time will tell , but the colors in the Leola tree are a cut above . Black Walnut tends to get muddy as far as color which is why I prefer to air dry even though I have 1 functional kiln at this time . As far as tops , it will need to be perfectly quartered . Backs and sides are not that particular in that they can be as much as 10 degrees off quarter and be useful . One of these days , I will get back down to Tennessee and you will be on the path . I still have some sycamore .
Love me some sycamore
You're basic tree

You're basic tree,

as a bass paler, I'm no Flea
Split both 3' sections in half earlier this evening . Hard work , but what's inside makes it all worth it . I gotta weigh this heavy sledge . It's a killer . Guess I'll post some pics tomorrow .
