Walnut again this time deeper, as policy I will always try to get the largest item I can from a given billet of wood and the billets will have been cut from the logs working round roots, branches, splits, rot and animal or insect damage, to get the biggest sound piece. I then find a shape to suit the diameter and thickness given to pick up on the grain. Notice how the taper follows the angle of the grain so that they work together.
