Walnut Hardwood Lumber is a premium domestic hardwood valued for its rich color and excellent finishing qualities. Walnut has a slightly open grain varying from wavy to irregular with an even and uniform medium to coarse texture. Walnut is a unique domestic species, because there are no other North American species of wood with the same distinct chocolate brown colored heartwood. The wood's rich tones make for excellent doors and paneling, and as a furniture wood, it is hard to beat.
Walnut gained popularity back when colonists started importing the lumber to Europe for furniture and interior woorwork, because it was so plentiful then it was easier and cheaper to obtain than Mahogany.
Today, Walnut is still highly prized for furniture and interior woodwork, but it is growing in popularity is starting to match that of Cherry. A significant development in the Walnut lumber use is in the marine industry, boat builders are now using the dark color on yacht interiors as a contrast to the lighter tones of Teak. At heart Walnut wood is a statement of luxury and is used in many applications to that effect.
Freshly milled Walnut can exhibit many different color hues, from deep browns and purples to light creams. Steaming Walnut will even out some of those color variations and creates a much more uniform and mellow chocolate color, over time and with oxidation and exposure to the sun Walnut will lighten in color and blends well with most other species.
