Black Walnut lumber, also known as Walnut or American Walnut, is one of the finest North American lumber species.  Along with Mahogany and Cherry, Walnut set the standard for early American furniture.

Most Walnut lumber is steamed right after it is sawn.  This darkens the sapwood by pulling the browns from the heartwood, basically homogenizing the color of the board.  We do not steam our Black Walnut, leaving all of the beautiful browns, golds and purples to tell their stories.

  • Treasured for both veneer and lumber
  • Hearty species
  • Oxidizes to a lighter color
  • Peaceful grain
