    Wood Gloat!!!!!

    Wood gloats!!!! first batch that you see on the lathe is from Barry Stratton! Second batch in the trailer is more black walnut from the same guy as that batch a few months ago, another of his trees fell down.... What was really interesting was at the base the wood was completely light, no dark whatsoever! maybe 3 foot diam is my guess.... anchorsealed them all, and waiting for my dad to get a new chainsaw chain so we can rip them length wise to take the pith out... any idea why there is that blue tinting around the dark center wood?

    Nice haul!!

    Lots of white sapwood. Typical of American Walnut. Fast grower tree.
    Black walnut doesn't have as much. Slower growing tree.

    Blue rings. I've seen that before. Not sure, but probably is a mineral stain.
    Trees pick up the different minerals in the ground, and absorb them.
    Now if it was a real dark blue, close to black, I would be thinking theres a nail or chunk of metal in there somewhere.
