So my grandparents had this big black Walnut tree in their side yard my entire childhood, around 3 years ago it died and had to be cut down. A 6 foot section of the trunk is still sitting in my grandparents yard. At any rate I'm hoping to get some guitar bodies out of it. My plan was to have my dad got up to my grandmas house and cut the wood in a shape that would be useful to a luthier, then I was hoping to send it to a custom shop for further processing into a telecaster of my specification. Here's my questions. What shape, dimensions and part of the log should be cut in order to get a guitar body or two? How should I store the wood between getting it from my dad and sending it off to a custom shop? What custom shop would help me with this project?
