Cutting Veneer

These shots show veneer being cut by our neighbor and skilled sawyer, Bruce Bonham, out of a Black Walnut Flitch. A flitch is a large slice from a tree, and these crotch grain walnut beauties were sliced into thin layers to be used as veneer on a demilune table. In the second and third picture you can see the large log being used to weigh down the slices of walnut to keep them flat as they are cut.
