    Scraps are going into the smoker tomorrow. Got a truck load of this black walnut for free about 2 years ago. And it was a bunch of funky shapes and couldn’t really split it. I should have squared up some nice chunks out of it. Still got some nice chunks not huge tho. Any way it was a fun project. This walnut cuts like butter so it was really nice too carve. Only tools we’re 171, 5 “ grinder with 60 grit flap wheel and and sanded also boiled linseed oil 0AD8735D-4809-400B-AD39-24C037C81684.jpeg BBD236F8-0846-4971-825B-729F1B039991.jpeg 32478084-C0D4-405B-ACDE-48E7354A1CA7.jpeg 7C3685C2-068B-4A64-BA77-C42E20315E66.jpeg

    I think a bullet may have went through this tree C1A0616B-196A-4F42-8932-7A9A715B6B2E.jpeg E383D5ED-3F25-4AE0-9486-EA61279C27D9.jpeg C833C1B1-7AB7-489B-93CD-A8FF3378F77B.jpeg

    Not a bullet, they don't go through wood that clean or leave a hole that looks like that. Vertical orientation would also be very hard to achieve.

    Most likely insect damage. The discoloration suggests it was exposed to water from the outside, likely rain, the splitting suggests the water froze. Insect may have also followed a natural defect in the wood that was pre-existing.
