Walnut is classed as a hardwood that has a medium density and good qualities for steam bending. This timber can be worked with hand tools with a moderate blunting effect.
It is generally a slow drying lumber, in order to avoid honey combing, and has a moderate amount of movement in service.
Black American Walnut, as it is commonly known, is mostly distributed from the Eastern USA and Ontario, Canada.
Its heartwood has a rich dark brown colour with a slightly purple/black hue, and is mostly straight-grained with an occasional wavy grain.
In addition to Walnut worktops, Walnut is a traditional hardwood flooring species. It is suitable for all domestic and some light commercial projects, and is a very popular species commonly used for high-end refurbishments and new builds.
