    That is a sweet piece of Walnut. Nicely done
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    I figured it was walnut, too. I can tell just by looking it ain't pine.

    Glenn, I can see why you're happy with that planer.

    Sweet board. Yeah, it would be nice to have a finish planer to deal with figured wood. Maybe when I get more room.
