Red face Lazy Woman Asking....

I was offered some black walnut wood.

Aye or Nay? Went looking for more info, but as the title of this thread reads; "Lazy Woman Asking" because when I went looking, I didn't see what I was looking for fast enough. Figured I would just ask, instead.

I saw the links that Stick posted (3 of them under wood species) and have them, but only a small mention of black walnut

Take it!!! Always take Walnut regardless of the 'flavor'. Walnut and Black Walnut is one in the same, btw. It sounds cooler and you can charge more for 'Black Walnut' than just plain 'Walnut' in some circles, but it's the same species. If you want to add to the marketing you can call it American Black Walnut.

It's always good to have Black Walnut around. Very distinctive grain and color when finished...

Is the wood in solid chunks, slabs, boards...? Size...? How much preparation would you have to do to it...? Resaw...? Cut 'n use...?

Currently in it's natural form (logs), but was told they would see about getting it cut for me to how I want it, rather than seeing it go to waste.

Not even sure how to request it be cut, to be honest.

**Update** Called him and confirmed that we want the wood. He's going to do what he can.

If you're not sure how you want it then get a mixture of 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, and 8/4 so you'll have options down the road.

Or just take the 4/4and 8/4. The guy that's doing the sawing (for free?) might think you're being a bit pushy, wanting a lot of custom cutting.
6/4 might be nice for cutting boards, on the other hand...

Yes. That's how rough sawn hardwood thickness is quoted, in 1/4" increments.

Okay. (I think). I use simple terms; that's what I understand. *giggle* can't help it. I do have SOME femaleness to me, ya know. I can't know everything
