I am, admittedly, one of the most impatient people you will ever come across... I operate in two time dimensions, yesterday (when it could have got done) and today (now that it didn't happen yesterday, when it will get done). Having said that, I also have a lot of respect for the need to allow things to come into alignment on their own accord.

About 13 years ago I was browsing Craigslist For Sale ads and came across an interesting one from an orchard grower in the Central Valley who was selling cut black walnut trees that he was replacing in his orchard. The trees were sawed into what are called cants, large blocks of wood that are later re-sawn into dimensional lumber, and the seal-the-deal aspect what that the guy had a friend who as a long haul truck driver coming to the Bay Area and could drop off the wood (this stuff can't be UPS'ed). Done, I bought the wood from one tree. 

The wood sat in my storage for years, every once in a while I'd look at it and ponder what I was going to do with ridiculously large pieces of black walnut. However, the wood was pretty green when I bought it so it needed to dry out so there was no sense of urgency. 

In Sept 2012 I went to a class in Montana on sculpted rocking chairs. This is one of those one-off things you want to do to learn something new in an immersion environment, and come out of it with something you can look at with a sense of accomplishment. I spent 2 weeks in Montana making a rocking chair with the walnut that had been sitting in my house for a dozen years... alignment. 

Well at that time we were going through a series of renovations on our house, we had approximately 1/3 of the structure torn down and rebuilt. along with a new exterior. We were still living in the house and with about 15 construction workers in-and-out every day, well things were a little hectic for 9 months, and then I started working at Ping, and I never had the opportunity to finish the chair. Having a little downtime over the last few days I decided to get it done... and 13 years after the inspiration for something was found in a Craigslist ad, I ended up with a Maloof-style sculpted rocking chair made from the wood of a single California black walnut.
