How do you show the grain figure in black walnut?
Hey guys just had a question for you. I have a huge slab of black walnut that has been air drying for decades. Now, this piece is flat sawn, but the grain runs straight. I've tried to raise the grain using naphtha and BLO, but I can't get any figure anywhere, even on the crotch of the tree, which is where the grain should be crazy. I'd like to make a bass, but how do you bring out the grain and get the cool figures? Thanks
