Walnut Firewood

I purchased a load of firewood today from a charity and had it delivered to my shop. I almost fainted when they started unloading it and saw almost half of it was Walnut.

I ask the guys about it. They said the sawyer they got it from was out of an 8 foot long 26 inch wide log. They asked him why didn't he saw it into boards. He told them, his interest was firewood only.

I doubt very seriously I can take this home and poke it in a wood heater.

Yep! I use quite a bit of walnut for firewood! Since I have my own sawmill and my own walnut trees, I've been cutting a good deal of walnut and other hardwood lumber for sale. My problem is getting rid of the limbs, log side slabs and other "waste". Around here in central/eastern Kentucky, it's like selling ice to Eskimos. And yes, I save the best for my own use.
