Gorgeous figured walnut
Through my hobby/shop..."The Long Dog Wood Studio", I sell many shift knobs, mostly to the Miata community. This is a set that was made using Rockler's figured walnut and the results are all that I could have asked for. The wood was nicely dried and ready for turning, the grain pattern was excellent. I bought 4 pieces, used two for this set and am looking forward to using the other two pieces.
The figured walnut is beautiful, here's a shift knob & e-brake handle set, that I made.
How I make shift knobs, same process was used for the figured walnut.

Beautiful Walnut
The pieces of Figured Walnut I received were solid and absolutely gorgeous. I use this fine wood for making custom knife grips.

Colored more than figured
Mine is really not figured as such, but the striping in it is still beautiful, not just plain walnut. I'm still glad I got it, figured walnut is NOT that easy to come by. Thanks.

Working around the grain.
Understanding that all cuts are different, I expected the cut to somewhat resemble the grain pictured. One corner of my purchased piece has the "walnut swirl" and the rest is basic wood grain. Made it somewhat difficult to use as I didn't want two different grain designs on the knife handle.

It is still a beautiful colored wood regardless of grain appearance.

1 ok 1 not
I ordered 2 pieces, one has the appearance of decent figuring on the outside. The other just looks like a solid two-tone, without figuring. Will be cutting into them at the end of April, but not impressed for the price.

I was looking for a 2x2 blank of some sort of nicer wood possibly with good figure, and figured I would try walnut instead of a flamed maple piece
