The sapwood of walnut is creamy white, while the heartwood is light brown to dark chocolate brown, occasionally with a purplish cast and darker streaks. Walnut is normally supplied steamed, to darken sapwood. The wood is generally straight grained, but sometimes with wavy or curly grain that produces an attractive and decorative figure. Although one of the most expensive hardwoods the grading rules allow for more defects than other American hardwoods. The stock that we keep is specially graded to a higher standard allowed by the grading rules. Please talk to our sales persons for detail.
