John, We recently had a large walnut tree lose a major branch during a storm. We had it milled into planks for one of the guys to build some gun stocks. I grabbed a few off cuts to make some spinning blocks and could send one to you unless you want to make your own. PM me with your address and i'll get one to you if you would like. It's beautiful wood.

Dave

Dave, that's a beauty. I love these blocks in walnut.
