Walnut slabs from the kiln yesterday
In 2008 we purchased a few more walnut logs, but this time we cut a few of them into quite thick rounds and left the bark on. We air dried them for several years and in May of this year placed them in the kiln (offsite) for their final cure. We just received them back from the kiln yesterday and I can't wait to dive in and see what we've got here. Typically I avoid cutting rounds primarily because of the way wood shrinks resulting in lots of wedge shaped pieces of the walnut pie. These rounds seem (at first glance) to have held up a bit better. We'll see.
