Guy up here was salvaging the last of the BIG trees, slabbing, and selling on the roadside. Charging tourist prices, sold a few, went broke. The guy built this house was at the close-out, got several large (3'x7') slabs. One he laboriously(!!) finished into a breakfast nook, and is still in our kitchen. That is 3" thick and I would not say it has "tone", less than a chunk of plywood (we got lots of that too). HEAVY!! Three more are in the chicken shed, un-planed, going nowhere. Actually we dragged (HEAVY!!) one out to be the shed ramp. Is a shame that a once-$600 slab sits in the rain, but it walks nice, and we were never going to get the gumption (and tools) to make it nice.

So the consensus is more work than it's worth! I may try it anyway.

Correct and I visited my local cabinet maker today. he's good. Were going to plane/surface/dowel the Walnut, after hours. I'm also wanting to put together sand filled baffles.
