Last year i was given a black walnut tree that fell in a storm...so I cut it and hauled it to my local saw mill... now its milling time...
File comment: Partial stack there is more up on the rack (~240 bf)

This weekend I milled up some of the narrow stock and was pleased to find some pretty cool grain patterns.

After jointing, I ran it through the planer (just put new blades in my planer)
but I am getting some tear out regardless of how fine a pass i take.
Any suggestions to avoid / correct or process this?
