Product Information:

Claro walnut, western USA. "Claro" is a Spanish word meaning clear or bright, and the common name "claro walnut" is usually used to refer to the wood cut from the lower bole (stump) of orchard walnut trees, especially on the west coast of the US. These trees are a mixture of species, created by grafting an English walnut (juglans regia) scion to a rootstock of a native walnut species, either black walnut (juglans nigra) or California walnut (juglans hindsii). The wood near the graft tends to be variegated in color, with beautiful marble-like, dark brown and tan swirls in the figure. Working properties are similar to black walnut. Good strength and bending properties. It takes finishes well. Larger blocks are +- 1/4" of size listed, smaller blocks +- 1/8". Spindle stock (1-1/2" - 2") dimensions are +-1/8". Grain runs with the longest dimension.

  • Marble-like figure
  • Good for turning
  • Finishes well
  • Claro walnut bowl blank, 2" x 6" x 6"

    I use small size pieces of wood purchased as turning squares to make pistol grips for my pistol grip business. [...] At this point they have been pretty good in sending quality pieces of wood I cant find else where.
