Large Hoop Landing Net: with unusual shades of Walnut

#832-18: This net is 26 inches overall. The hoop is 15 x 8.5 inches. The wood is what makes this net unusual. The entire net is American black walnut.  The heart wood of walnut is a dark wood and the outer layers of the tree are a lighter almost white wood.  As the wood, in the living tree, ages the sapwood takes on the deep tones as the tree continues to add new layers of sap/surface wood.  The wood in this net was cut off my property then air dried for about 3-5 years which preserved the contrast in color.  Most lumber is dried in a wood kiln using stream which creates a more uniform color but with loss of the lighter wood.  When I sort through the boards there is the occasional piece which was cut at the right angle that demonstrates the transformation of the sap wood into the heart wood. Not a combination of color and tone that one often sees.
