Several years back I came into a chunk of 6/4 Black Walnut
roughly 75" long, with a width that varies between 18" to 20".
My plan was to use it as a fireplace mantel when I finally
settled down and bought a house.
Now I have the house I did some measuring and discovered if I
take enough off the plank to make support brackets, it will be
too short for the fireplace!
Does anyone know of a source for a bit of aged 6/4 Black Walnut
(around 16" x 16" should do) in the Virginia/North Carolina area?
East of the mountains would be a plus.
Maybe I keep missing it, but I've never seen 6/4 walnut in stock. It
might not be a regular item. I asked them about 6/4 maple and they
told me they only way I'd get it is with a 1000 bd ft order. 6/4
cherry is always available.
I can't say that Groff's specifically has 6/4 walnut in stock but it's on
the price sheet with no minimum mentioned. They are not far from me and have
quite a bit of material in stock. It's worth checking I guess. 6/4 hard
maple is not on the price sheet. Soft and Tiger, yes, but not hard.
The usual disclaimers...I have no affiliation, etc. etc....
I just know that they are good people to deal with and seem to appreciate my
