Black Walnut

Black Walnut Hardwood Lumber Juglans nigra. Black Walnut is one of America's most widely known and most valuable species. The wood is moderately heavy, hard, and strong. The heartwood color ranges from light brown to chocolate brown -- sometimes with purplish overtones; the sapwood is light brown, and often steam treated in order to reduce the contrast.

Black Walnut grows throughout the eastern United States, but in relatively low quantities. The wood works easily, stains and finishes extremely well and is often used in furniture and for architectural products which highlight its particular grain pattern, color, and texture.

Black Walnut, or simply Walnut, is available for sale as rough sawn boards or S2S. Walnut boards can be provided as straight line ripped lumber if required, (SLR2E). 

Use: Furniture, cabinets, architectural panels, doors, floors, gun stocks, woodenware.
