    I had a scrap of highly figured Turkish walnut that my wood working neighbor used it make a mounting for an emblem from the hubcap off my old '76 Cadillac Eldorado convertible. "Highest and best use."

    It's a wonderful discussion piece.

    Walnut boards are selling at about $3 a board foot in my area. You have almost one board foot. Your piece would be discounted because it is very short but it is thicker than most lumber and that would increase its value. The open market value of the piece of wood would be around $3, but if you located someone who needed a short, thick piece, the value could go as high as $10.

    One board ft is 12"x12"x1" = 144 cubic inches

    Yours is 48x10x3.5 = 1680 cubic inches - 11.67 Board ft

    It may be worth $30-35 to the right person.

    10 board feet is correct. I misread 4' in the original post as 4"

    If the wood is clear (no knots, rot or voids)and does not have checks (cracks) it is valuable. Hard to beat E-bay for getting top price on goods like this that do not have widespread demand. If it does have cracke on the ends cut those off and advertise the shorter piece that remains as "clear". Don Miller
