Where It's From:
Black Walnut (Juglans nigra) is native to North America. It prefers moist conditions and is primarily found in the East, Central, and Midwest of the USA.
Why It's Special:
Black Walnut is prized for its dark heartwood.
How It Works:
The grain has a medium texture and is easy to work with. However, please note that Black Walnut sawdust and chips are toxic to horses. Great care should be taken when disposing of debris.
Its colors range from brown, reddish brown, purple, black, and black with hints of green. Or it could have a combination of all! Each log is unique.
Fine furniture, tables, desks, guitars, beds, libraries, and book cases are all common applications of Black Walnut wood.
