Hard to believe an old "trash" piece that was about to get hauled off to the burn pile had that hiding inside! That looks great Larry! I'm glad you got it so you could work your magic.
That walnut that I sawed the other day. I got the log after it had been cut. The first crotch piece and up was already gone. A couple of the boards from where the crotch would have started has the start of some really nice feather figure. People just don't know!
had 2 buyers for it, one backed out due to job issues now but the other one is checking powers to be for confirmation and picked up another buyer for this one or the next one if this one goes to second buyer. so maybe i can unload the walnut slabs as well
Well Larry, I almost missed this one, I do like the final result, and the way you solved the legs attachment problem. A question if I may. Was that a comission or you made it and later found someone interested in it.?
it was a idea that i had bounced around for some time but hadnt committed to it with other thing coming in front of it. but now i am locked up things that were on hold suddenly got to the top of the list. i just need to have thing clear up over here to get some one to come pick it up. pictures and word of mouth is what sold it.
it left today and the new owner was very pleased..and my pocket is now fuller thinking about making another and see if i can sell it or post the pics of this one and see if anyone bites for a new buyer
