Product Information:

Black walnut (juglans nigra) Canada and USA. Heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is nearly white. It has a medium texture, the grain is usually straight, but it can be irregular. Black walnut can occasionally also be found with figured grain patterns such as: curly, crotch, and burl. Typically easy to work provided the grain is straight and regular. Planer tearout can sometimes be a problem when surfacing pieces with irregular or figured grain. It glues, stains, and finishes well. Some common uses for black walnut include: furniture, cabinets, gun stocks, interior paneling, veneer, turned items, and other small wooden objects such as pens, bottle stoppers, knife handles and pepper mills. Thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock.100% clear and sanded on both sides. Dimensions are +- 1/8" and the grain runs with the longest dimension.

  • Woodsense: Walnut - Of the world’s several walnut species, it’s the American black walnut (Juglans nigra) that claims the title of most beautiful. Because of its continuing demand as a classic furniture wood (as well as for its exquisitely figured veneer), black walnut reigns as the nation’s most valuable furniture and cabinet species, even though it represents less than two percent of all commercially available U.S. hardwoods.

    Pros

    • Nice grain
    • Relatively free of defect

    Cons

    • One piece warped

    Best Uses

    • Was to be table legs

    Comments about Walnut 2" x 2" x 30" :

    Four purchased lengths to be used as table legs. One of the legs badly warped and torqued required enough removal of wood to be used. Questionable results. I would be skeptical to recommend to a friend to use for exacting projects. Other than that product nice.

    not the best, but usable

    Cons

    • Not all heart wood
    • Pieces didn't match well

    Best Uses

    Comments about Walnut 2" x 2" x 30" :

    I bought 4 pieces of this walnut to use to make table legs. One of the pieces was almost completely sap wood. Another was about 50% sap wood. One of the pieces had a significant enough bow to it that by the time I jointed/planed it straight and parallel, I had to scale down the dimensions of the table legs by 1/4" so I could use it. I wish they let you specify that you want all heart wood and that they'd be a little more selective before sending bowed pieces. I normally would buy from a nearby lumber yard; but I had the woodworking bug so badly I didn't want to wait until the weekend to drive to the lumber yard, so I just bought it online. The only time I'll do that again is if the local lumber yard doesn't have what I need.

    Wood was straight & nicely grained. Dimensionally accurate, but contained significant color transition down length of piece and last .75" of length unusable for game calls due to chipped/cracked defects and wax (protect end grain?)
