Overview

With its gorgeous chocolate tone and easy workability, it's easy to see why Black Walnut is often regarded as the classic American cabinet wood. The heartwood varies from light grayish-brown to deep chocolate brown, occasionally approaching an almost black or purplish-brown. The grain is slightly open and usually straight, but is famous for its sometimes stunning figure. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations. Thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!

  • Tree: May attain a height of 70 to 90 feet, with a 24 to 48 inch diameter trunk.
  • Texture: Usually coarse, but uniform.
  • Luster: Somewhat dull, but develops a lustrous patina after many years in use.
  • Odor: Emits a mild, sweet odor reminiscent of cocoa.
  • Movement: Dimensionally stable after seasoning. Absorbs and releases moisture more slowly than most woods.
  • Natural Durability: Resistance to insects and fungi is very good.
  • Working characteristics: Works extremely well with hand tools.
  • Steam Bending: Steam bends well. (Roughly 78% of steam bended pieces survive without cracking).
  • Strength: The wood is strong and is able to withstand extra weight with little deflection or bending.

Always Satisfied

Rick S Posted May 24, 2014
I've bought wood from Rockler about 4 or 5 times now and I've alway been satisfied with what they sent. Wood is straight, no flaws and measured exactly as stated. Very fine quality and I just won't buy from anyone else. I bought wood from a competitor before hearing about Rockler and half the wood they sent was bowed or warped. Never have that worry with Rockler. I've bought maple, cherry, walnut and purpleheart and it has all been good. Nice job!

Very satisfied

I've ordered cherry, maple and walnut from Rockler a few times now and I've never gotten a bad piece much like I have from other suppliers who don't seem to care. I've bought 1/2 inch and 3/4 in various sizes and they've all been good. I don't buy from anybody else. Rockler is tip-top.

This was my first internet lumber...

Guest from Mobile, AL Posted February 26, 2013
This was my first internet lumber purchase. I was a bit apprehensive about it! not being able to touch it and see what I was actually buying. I was very pleased with the purchase. The wood was beautiful and clean. The end of one board had a three inch check but it did not affect my project. Good buy.
