5 years ago a client removed a tree from their parents farm and had cut into boards. After 2 years of air drying I was able to begin work on completing their bed frame. Retiring, relocated, getting settled and constructing a new shop, I was then able to get back to completing their bedroom suite. Wanting a specific look and working around the bark and sap wood I was able to complete recently. Was a fun project and enjoyed working closely with the client on the design. Thanks for looking.

That’s beautiful. It has a real arts ad craft look to it.

Great job! (And my friends and family laugh at me when I say the two Black Walnut trees in my backyard are my retirement project.) Thanks for posting.

That is very nice work. Walnut is great to work with. What did you finish it with? Looks nice.

Thank You for the all the comments. Dsute, First, 3 coats of sanding sealer, after a day of drying applied a thick coat of Enduro-Var Water Based Polyurethane Varnish(General Finish product), lightly sanded with 400 grit, applied 2 more thinner coats of Varnish and rubbed out any rough surfaces with a 800 grit wet/dry sandpaper.
Leafherder, their are some very nice pieces of furniture hidden in those trees in your rear yard.
Thanks to everyone for looking.
