Our Cut-To-Size American Black Walnut is an attractive darker hardwood timber. Rich dark brown to purplish-black in colour, with the 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 hardwood 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 regard to wastage. As is common in Walnut, the sapwood is steamed to match the colour of the heartwood, although this does reduce its brightness. Please be aware that there will often be a contrasting sap present in the boards, the steaming can only penetrate so deep and, as such, the thinner the boards are planed, the more obvious the contrast will become.

Name: Juglans nigra

Uses: Furniture, doors, cabinet trims, gunstocks, flooring, worktops, desktops, shelving, kitchen worktops, sink and island worktops, desk worktops, bathroom worktops and breakfast bars.

Country of Origin: Found in eastern areas of North America before gradually appearing in Europe and the south of the United Kingdom. Black Walnut trees favour warmer conditions and fertile soil in low-lying countryside and areas where the land meets a river or stream. These trees will thrive in areas that receive substantial sunlight.

Woodshop’s Preferred Finish: Osmo Polyx hardwax oil 3062, 3032, 3044, Osmo Top Oil 3058, 3068

Durability: Moderately Durable (10 - 15 years)

Density: 660 Density (Kg/m³)

Colour(s): Hardwood colours vary from light brown to dark, rich brown and purplish-black with even darker streaks of brown detail. The sapwood can be a fusion of light yellow, brown and grey to almost white.

The Timber: Black Walnut is the darkest hardwood available. It offers a good level of hardness with a typically straight but coarse grain that may come with some attractive irregularities from time to time. It has a medium texture and a good natural lustre.

Strength: This moderately hard and durable, cut-to-size hardwood will provide you with good shock and dent resistance, good dimensional stability and reliable strength properties suited to practical woodworking projects. It’s also highly resistant to decay and is only vulnerable to insects if left untreated.

Working Qualities: Black Walnut is easy to work with, particularly if the grain pattern is straight and uniform. Take extra care if you spot any irregularities in the grain as this will help to reduce the risk of tear outs.

Uses: Internal

Lovely quality on some planed walnut and oak. I was nervous about how the wood would be packaged, but there was very clearly a lot of diligence applied when preparing the shipment and the wood has arrived in perfect condition. Super happy.
