The Ultimate Tonewood Thread says yes, but with a hard finish. Warmoth says no. I'm not really sure if I can use it or not. The body and neck are both walnut, if it changes anything. Also, what exactly is a hard finish?
#2
You can use it. I'm using it on a build now, check out my twin walnut RG builds to see. A hard finish is a clear coat.

I'm planning on using two part epoxy for the finish, will that work? Also, can I do it as a single piece?
#4
not that best way to do it, a clear coat it much easier, but that would work yes.
A single board? Yea.

If you mean a neck, then it would be a much better idea to do it in lams. Much stronger that way.

make sure to use a mask when you cut it/sand it.

normally i just use a fan to blow the dust away from me, but every time i do anthing with walnut it always seems to make a really heavy dust that gives me flu-like symptoms for a week or two. that was until i learned it was a bad idea to not use a mask with it.
