Thank you RMP Designs for the gift of your walnut tree. This is where the story begins. #walnutfrompine
As beautiful as walnut trees are, they are also very messy. Robin and Randy had decided it was time to let this tree go. Luckily for us, they thought of Creative Woodworking.
A professional tree guy took the tree down, and Robin shared the pictures with us. Big tree!
Once the tree was down and the brush removed, it was our time. Getting the walnut into the truck we knew would be a challenge. Bud built a lift to help and it totally worked. As the larger logs were “lifted” level with the truck bed, Sandy backed up the truck. Voila!
At home, the walnut from pine was off loaded, stacked up on stickers and put to bed for the winter.
After some research, visiting a local saw mill, and deciding that we did not want to move our walnut back and forth, Bud decided we should just buy a mill.
In April of this year, we welcomed a Wood-Mizer LT15 Start to our Creative Woodworking family.
Milling only for ourselves at the moment, but down the road, we would like to offer sawmill services. We believe this Wood-Mizer will be an awesome investment for us.
Introducing the 1st of many pieces to be made from The Walnut From Pine Street. Four live edge serving trays finished with Watco Danish Oil and featuring stainless steel handles.
Proudly, we offered the live edge serving trays, along with our other products at the 7th Annual Holiday Craft Fair in Windsor, VT on 11/9/19. Megan had expressed interest early on and we were so happy that she was able to choose between the 4 and become our 1st sale from The Walnut From Pine Street.
