Why we love it:
Walnut is strong, hard and durable, without being excessively heavy. It has excellent woodworking qualities, and takes finishes well. The wood is light to dark chocolate brown in color with a straight grain in the trunk. Wavy grain is present toward the roots, and walnut stumps are often dug out and used as a source of highly figured veneer.
How we use it:
Walnut is used in all types of fine cabinet work
Where it’s found:
It grows in Europe, America and Asia.
