Is that really Walnut? Unless is is sap wood (outer growth on trunk) it should have a little brown coloring. I m thinking it may be Elm or Ash which can have color like that.

Your refer to the bowl you made earlier but when I went to check your project posting I noticed you have none.
You ask a lot of basic and sometimes interesting questions but it might be nice to see some of your end products.

Hi, yes it is walnut, that is sapwood, it does have some darker wood on the other side. The bowl I referred to is in the thread sanding walnut, I was doing a walnut bowl that got yellow when I sanded it. I don’t post anything in finished projects because most of what I do is junk. Thanks about the cat he is a very good landlord. here is pics of a bowl blank from the same tree. I think it bis limb wood because we I stopped the guy said he was saving the trunk for lumber. Thanks for the info on splatting, never knew the whole story on it, just that it happened
