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.

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.

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.

Thanks, Guys!

I've been setting a few of these aside over the last few months so I dug some out and resawed them last night. None quite as spectacular but awfully nice, definitely worth the effort to resaw. No idea on what I'll do with them at this point but the creative juices are flowing!

It's just amazing what you can find if you pay attention! That piece is gorgeous. I thought the same thing about framing it. Or a coffee table, or cabinet doors on an entertainment center...somewhere it will be seen and appreciated!
