Took some time away from the carved box w drawer, to work with some funny wood. Yes. I’ve returned once again to using Juglans…
First up, juglans nigra….yes, nigra. Remember my struggles with black walnut? https://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/?s=walnut+high+chair Well, of course the first go ’round I can blame on poor quality stock; kiln-dried, random-sawn lousy trees.
the 2nd time around, I got very clear, straight-grained, air-dried stock, and it’s two off-cuts from that batch that I’m working now.
But first, some green wood – a bowl from Juglans cinerea; butternut. That’s what I’m interrupting my interruption for…this could be fun…if that jackhammer next door would quit.
