The Cornscala upper cabinets are assembled and now need to have the ports milled out in the bottom. I needed another small piece of walnut to finish these up so I picked up some over at Owl. This piece came from a large, commercial kiln that uses steam to blend their walnut. It gives it a more uniform look, but it also dulls it down. I really prefer the vertical strip that you see below that came from a local sawyer who uses a solar kiln.
