What is walnut?

Walnut wood is obtained from the walnut tree - Otherwise known as 'Juglans'. It is capable of growing up to 40 metres high. There are 21 species, with the greater number now grown in North and South America. English walnut and black walnut are the most frequently used types for furniture making.

Walnut is a highly popular timber and has been used in the past as gun stocks and even as a herb in Chinese medicine. Also the nuts from walnut trees are edible and are globally popular. The shells are used for cleaning metals, fibreglass, plastics, wood and stone amognst many other things.
 

Why is walnut great for furniture making?

Nowadays, walnut is used widely in new cabinet making as well as being popular by antique furniture collectors. Walnut is a lovely dark and rich wood, providing a warm and luxurious feeling to any interior decor scheme. Walnut is a hardwood with a neat, straight grain and is available in a range of shades to provide for all requirements.

Walnut is less dense than oak and is in high demand from furniture makers because it will keep its shape when intricately carved. Walnut furniture is often crafted using walnut veneers, due to the expense of solid walnut hardwood. Quality walnut veneers with tight grains produce exceptionally attractive furniture that can be to a very special, smooth finish.
