Very nice indeed. Walnut is probably my favorite wood. I have some from Monticello. Someone with authority there had an oak and walnut tree removed because he said Thomas Jefferson use to stand at this specific point and look down on the University of Virginia and now these trees would be blocking his view. I highly suspect old Tom turned over in his grave at that one.
Fortunately for me may Father-in-Law was good friends with the gentleman that got the contract to cut these down and was the recipient of about 100BF of the boards resulting from the walnut tree all dressed to 3/4". Ed was a self taught woodworker with the patience of a saint. In his almost 100 years, missed by 3 months, he built many Grandmother and Granddaughter clocks. The only power tools I knew him to have was a benchtop table saw (old Sears), electric sander, hand drill, and I think an old router. All his other tools were hand tools. These sit proudly in my shop less the table saw.
Although some of the wood is a bit wormy it has great color and grain. Still haven't found that special project for it......Really miss the old guy.
