American Black Walnut


The heartwood is varying in colour from rich chocolate-brown to purplish-black. The sapwood is pale brown, however, the timber is generally steamed before drying which darkens the sapwood to the heartwood colouring. The timber has a fine even texture with a rather coarse grain. Get a Quote
