Default Found a nugget!

When I picked up the lumber for the 5 Walnut plaques (just posted about those) I noticed a 'nugget' on the end of one board. So I cut that off and resawed it today and it's gorgeous! It ended up about 17" x 20" x 1/4" thick in its bookmatched and sanded to 220 form. Now I have to decide what to do with it... I have a few ideas but nothing concrete yet.

The boards were very straight except for right at the end on this particular one so I had to be careful resawing it.

Opened up to reveal the nugget -

Lots of surfacing needed to get them equal and level -

Oh man, that is really beautiful. It's one very good reason to have a good band saw and resaw blade.

David that is awesome. I saw the picture of the halves on your CNC machine. Have you decided what your going to make yet? Please post some pictures when you have completed the project.

David, that would look beautiful if you just put a plain frame around it

This just might be one of those occasions when you design a piece simply to show off this treasure. Good on you for recognizing the gem in the rough.
