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.

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.

I had a stockpile of walnut...

Dale M from Fairbury, IL Posted September 12, 2011
I had a stockpile of walnut that I finally used up. I decided to try Rockler's walnut to make two 1856 wooden Railroad locks. The front face and rear face are walnut, the middle section is maple. The walnut worked great on the locks.

Great quality and rapid delivery. I...

Keith M from Bowie, MD Posted June 12, 2011
Great quality and rapid delivery. I needed some walnut to make an award pedastal for a farewell ceremony. I could not find it locally, even from a milner. Rockler came through... again.
