Black Walnut

Sophisticated | Professional | Elegant

Black Walnut wood is highly prized for its beauty and durability. It is known for its rich, dark color and attractive grain patterns, which can range from straight to wavy or curly. The wood has a medium to coarse texture and finishes well, resulting in a smooth and lustrous surface. These qualities make it a preferred choice for furniture, cabinets, flooring, and other high-end woodworking projects.

Trees typically grow to a height of 30-40 meters (100-130 feet) and have a broad, rounded crown. The bark is dark brown to black and deeply furrowed, giving the tree its name. The wood itself is dark brown with rich, chocolate-colored streaks, often exhibiting a straight grain pattern.
