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 8" x 8"


  • Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

    Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

    Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ΒΌ" of size listed.

    Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Good price but piece I got had a big 3 corner gouge in the top. It was at leat 3/8 deep. Really limits what it can be used for. I checked recommend to friend because wood is nice. I hope my gouged piece was abnormal damage and not why it was discounted.
