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. At least one face and one edge will be free from sap wood.
Featuring a particularly beautiful grain pattern and colour, Black Walnut can be polished to an exceptional finish. Perfect for dining room tables, kitchen worktops, desktops, retail counters in bars and cafés as well as many other interior uses.
The grading rules of Black Walnut allow for more knots and defects than other timbers with at least one edge and face free from sap wood. Commonly, the sapwood is steamed or stained to match the colour of the heartwood, although this does reduce it's brightness.
