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.
