    I have a nice set of black walnut waiting on me for a J185. I have to finish the mandolin first. Going on two years now. A little more handwork and I'll be ready to glue on the back and she's done (except for finish-that's another two years).

    Keep 'em coming.

    I always liked walnut on guitars. The bass that I had built and used almost exclusively during the early 1970s had a walnut body. It's a heavy bugger, but that would not be an issue on an acoustic guitar.

    Here is the desk that the top was on.
    Kind of a plan desk for our shop but very handsome.
    The walnut was a flitch of lumber or a complete tree. Just the proper way to build something if you can. It is getting harder to get lumber like this.

    A story in walnut:
    The Solid Walnut Armoire I design and built in Victorian revival style (photo below). A story in wood of the Arthurian myth as told by Gawain and others.

    The lower section is about Merlin’s encounter with Uther Pendragon and the building of a castle. Arthur father Askanar, two hidden dragon eggs under mountain were it was to be built. Excalibur is the sword that divides the doors and extends into the lower sections connection the two story of Arthur and Merlin. The upper section is about Arthur Camelot, as you look at each carving you can attribute them to Arthur story. The shields are for the Knights of the Round Table, columns are fore the Camelot, on the hilt of Excalibur is a lions head and a top of that is a clock for the round table, and the finials are the for the grail and the search of the purer of heart.
