American Black Walnut is an attractive darker hardwood. Rich dark brown to purplish-black in colour, with sapwood being pale yellowish-brown. The timber is moderately hard, tough and strong, with a fairly coarse grain, but easy to work.
Featuring particularly beautiful grain patterning, Black Walnut can be polished to an exceptional finish.
The grading rules of Black Walnut allow for more knots and defects than other timbers. This is something to consider with regards to wastage. Commonly, the sapwood is steamed or stained to match the colour of the heartwood, although this does reduce it's brightness.

Walnut Review Reviewed by Anonymous on 13 Apr 2016
I am a new customer of Woodshop Direct having been recommended by a work colleague. The quality of walnut supplied was first class, dimensionally accurate, straight, clean and fit for purpose. It is extremely useful to be able to purchase cut to size timber for even the smallest of projects. The service provided by Woodshop Direct was faultless, packaging and delivery was very good. For customers who do not have full wood machining capabilities it is really helpful to have timber supplied to customers own specific dimensions. Based on this, my first experience of using Woodshop Direct, I would certainly recommend them to friends and colleagues who need to source quality timber cut to order. The walnut is being used to repair a walnut trophy cabinet.
