    I have recently acquired a 60" branch of walnut, seasonned in my garage for 2 weeks. It is about 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inches wide. Will it make a bow...that is not like pine and breaks? I have done some roughing, and found it very stubborn to bend. It is very dry.

    I don't know about a bow but you could widdel it down and make a nice turkey call. I'm guessing it will break
