WooHoo. One of the guys I work with went to Missouri to see his brother, mom and dad. He asked me on his way out the door if I would like some walnut wood. I said sure that would be great. Boy was I surprised when he showed up. I couldn't believe my eyes. He brought 5 logs all over 6 ft long and the smallest is about 12 1/2" with the largest being 18" in diameter. The tree came down in a storm last week so he brought me the trunk which was 27 1/2' long. I figure there are about 35 to 40 bowls unless I use some of the smaller one for HF's. The big one weighs somewhere between 200 and 300 lbs. Got the ends waxed. So guess I will cut them into blanks this weekend if I can lift them. The neighbor said I could use his arm lift. Oh what a problem to have.
