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!

Lumber Details:
  • 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

Good Product If You Don’t Have a Local Hardwood Supplier
There’s not lot to talk about. I needed a small piece of Walnut and none of my scraps would work. I checked Rockler and they had the exact piece I needed. When it arrived, it was perfect. Good value for the money. I don’t have easy access to quality hardwoods, so the ability to buy small quantities of specific hardwoods (even though it would be theoretically more economical to buy larger pieces of lumber and cut off what I need, Rockler sells a lot of exotic wood in smaller sizes, and I think their prices are reasonable. Product delivery was routine.

Imperfections ended up pretty
Although some of them were slightly warped or color variation was huge among the 40 piece I bough, my final product came out still beautiful with the imperfections.

How bendable is the 1/8 wood?
James M on Nov 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: using steam, use hot bar with flexible steel for bending, sprayed water on the wood held wet wood over the bar with the flexible steel, repeat several times to the right shape. the bar are available from instrument making sites such as Stuart -McDonald.
Are the dimensions listed actual or nominal?
Jennifer R on Feb 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Actual
