Black and English Walnut

 

 

These trees come from Paso Robles, CA. Paso Robles historically was known for walnut orchards and other agricultural land. As California has become a more popular wine production area the town has moved to growing grapes. These trees were being pulled out of the ground to make way for a vineyard. The trees were being burn! Luckily they were too "green" and wet to burn fully. I rescued them from the ashes to turn them into the beautiful things you see here. I personally milled the logs from start to finish.
