I have some very wide black walnut. Anyone ever turn the grain the other way? Just trying to come up with somthing very unuasual? Got a lot of wood so its time to let it flow....

In my opinion it'd look funny.
Also you'd have the end-grain on the sides which would look odd.

I think there'd be structural problems with it.

Yea I was wondering why I have never seen one like that but not offten when you can square up on 21+ piece of walnut sideways.....Sure would look cook going the other direction with 5-7 coats of tune oil.

You can probably use it in a laminate. You could sandwich it in between some other stronger wood or use it as a decorative top on top of some stronger stuff.

You dont think black walnut would stand on its own?

If you've got the grain going perpendicular to the surface rather than parallel with it. I'd say it'd be pretty unstable to have by itself.
