Black Walnut

Some time between 2012 and 2015

Time to make: 1 hours
Finishing: 2 hour

The squirrels around my house find black walnuts somewhere around here (I've never been able to find it) and bury them in my yard. So when I saw this pattern, it was as easy as picking one off the ground in my back yard in the spring. The nut had been chewed on but I didn't need the whole thing just slice out of the middle. A quick cut with the band saw, sanding it with fine sandpaper, then drilling a couple of holes into the back for a coat hanger loop super glued in place. I gave it a couple of coats of poly and was amazed at the natural beauty of the slide.
