Walnut butt

Recommended Posts

So we have all seen the ‘very valuable black walnut tree ‘ cartoon so tomorrow I will be in that cartoon in real life , I met a retired woodworker the other day and after chatting I said I would drop some off cuts in for him to try and help him get back doing something as he isn’t well ,so he points me over the fence into a neighbors garden and there is an ok walnut butt so dropped my card in , so one of the first things the matey says to me is how much is it worth, I am going to have a good look in the morning I will take some photos but what to offer .

Cheers Mark

And measure it then you can work out volume and therefore value.

Is it down and on bearers?
Or a vertical stump?
Best offer £50-£100
Because that's probably what it's worth.

I regularly get told....
"Oh if you hadn't milled up that log, I would have had to pay £500+ to get it removed."

Yeah, don't get sucked in to wanting the walnut so much and then paying over the odds. My guess is that the customer will be surprised that it is worth so little. Good luck mate
