Reclaimed Walnut

Reclaimed Walnut

Walnut is a wood species that speaks for itself and frequently does not require an introduction. Some are fascinated by its deep brown hue and tight woodwork, while others are overwhelmed. Walnut is one of the hardest wood species, scoring 1010 on the Janka Scale. Walnut is generally always left in its natural hue when it comes to colour.

Walnut is commonly used in furniture, cabinets, gunstocks, interior panelling, veneer, turned goods, and other tiny wooden objects and oddities.

Although board widths might be small at times, they are quite popular and generally accessible. Prices for this premium domestic hardwood, which is considered a premium domestic species, are in the upper range for a domestic species.

In terms of decay resistance, walnut is considered to be fairly resilient, yet it is subject to insect assault.

If the grain is straight and consistent, it is usually easy to deal with. When surfacing parts with uneven or figured grain, planer tear-out might be a concern. It adheres to the surface, stains it, and gives it a nice finish (though walnut is rarely stained). Steam bending works nicely with this material.
