Turning Rotten Walnut Wood Into Art

Woodworking Project. Nature Made Art

This week we take a trip to my local hardwood dealer Kencraft Company in Toledo, Ohio to look for walnut that would typically be thrown out so we can turn it into art. We found a large gnarly piece with a rotten worm hole that we resawed into a book matched pair. The heart shaped hole left by the worm holes was backed with a bright red velvet fabric to highlight the beautiful pattern left by nature.

The overall size of the piece is 25″ x 25″ framed with a nice contrasting cherry and finished with boiled linseed oil.
