    Over the years, we have had people come to our door asking if we were willing to sell our black walnut trees. At the time, no; we had no interest. However, now because we will be moving, we would like to sell the trees. Unfortunately, no one has returned to ask if we've changed our mind, so...

    Was supposed to be cutting lumber for a counter-top but couldn't bring myself to cut the natural edge off of these planks!! They screamed table-top! One piece is 19"wide in the center and the other is 16"wide. They are now weighted down in the kiln to begin their drying journey. I coated them...

    I've got an opportunity to buy some black walnut and was wondering if anyone could offer any tips on what to look for. It sounds as if the lumber was cut over 10 years ago and has sat in a barn after being stickered (?) with the wood spacers. Since it has air dryed for so long, it sounds like...

    Any one have advice about having a black walnut tree taken down. We have one on our back yard that needs to come down. It's about 24" in dia. at the base and has a little curve to it as it is growing away from a large maple. It's affecting my wife's garden and she finally wants it out. We are in...
