Open House Sawmill Demonstration Slabs
Did you miss this years open house? If so, you missed out on our sawmill demonstration cutting this gorgeous 25 foot Claro Walnut.
Claro Walnut from the American Northwest can have some of the most spectacular figure of any member of the walnut family. The trees grow rapidly in this favorable climate and it is not unusual to find a four foot diameter tree that is not even a hundred years old. Claro Walnut is difficult to dry due to its water pockets but this doesn’t usually affect slab top tables. With its tendency for rapid growth, Claro Walnut can have growth rings in excess of an inch.
This beautiful, green Claro Walnut is loaded with curly figure along the edges and clustered towards the bottom, along with some nice crotch figure. Lengths are 21.4 ft-25.5 ft, width averages 37″-74″, and thickness ranging from 2.75″-4″. Although, these beauties need time to dry, we couldn’t wait to share them with you!
