This was a stick I got after a storm that had taken down a walnut tree. Sadly they had already put the most of the stick size branches in a the chipper I only got 2.

It is good but can be tricky. Like oak there can be issues with chipping out..

Nice work.

A couple of decades ago, a good walnut trunk around here was worth $5K. Have no idea what it would be now, but standard inflation would put it around $20K. So I'm sad whenever I see walnut going into a chipper.

And, it was the favorite wood for both my teacher and his teacher. They worked mostly on a larger scale, but some of their work was done w. 1/4" gouges.
