    This slab was 1-1/8" thick. The cursive font was a combination of Black Jack Script and a trace of high res photo of the font used on their invitation. I made the A, t, and h's from that and then welded it all together. The result was then very close to what was used on the invite.

    No wonder I value your opinion so much, that is beautiful. And to think some people use black walnut as fire wood. I have a piece big enough for an end table top 2 1/4 thick with live edge on 2 sides. Its been ripped glued and sanded and i have no idea what i am going to do with it.

    “And to think some people use black walnut as fire wood”

    Just last week we salvaged some walnut from a burn pile…
    We converted it to 47 slabs that will make coffee/end tables.

    I sure wish we could have found this situation before the tree was cut into 3’ and 4’ lengths!

    Here's another slice off the same log. Kind of a strange request, but that's what they wanted.
