Walnut American

Walnut is a timeless hardwood choice. It is widely available, has a straight grain and varies in color from yellow sapwood to a rich, deep brown heartwood. Black Walnut, the most common variety, is grown in the eastern hardwood forests, while English Walnut is grown in California. Walnut is the only dark brown domestic wood. It is also used in gun stocks because it withstands heavy recoil and does not warp.

Walnut is a popular choice for furniture, flooring, and countertops, as well as small projects. Walnut is quite strong and moderately heavy. Color can vary widely, even across the same board, from yellow sapwood to deep chocolate brown heartwood. Walnut dries slowly, with little shrinkage. Walnut has a high resistance to decay, although it is vulnerable to insect damage.
