About Our Walnut
American Black Walnut is the most highly prized furniture timber in the world. Its intense richness and beautiful grain have captivated furniture makers over the world for centuries, with good reason. An American Black Walnut worktop is simply sensational.
We use Walnut worktops a lot in kitchens with good lighting to stunning effect, particularly in contemporary kitchens with gloss units or stainless steel for example. You can use a Black Walnut worktop to soften a kitchen or make the detail sharper depending on the lighting.
Do bear in mind ‘European Walnut’ – which generally means Turkish Walnut – is much paler, softer, and includes lots of sapwood as it a much smaller tree. The effects are completely different, and although we can supply European Walnut worktops if specified, we don’t really recommend it. The best Black Walnut worktops are from the North Eastern USA, as the growing conditions are harsh which makes for the beautiful colour and structure.
A Walnut worktop has very strong antiseptic properties, which makes it extremely rot resistant, and the perfect surface for preparing food. Excellent around areas of high water use like sinks, it keeps its colour and texture over years and years of use. Slightly easier to work with than White Oak, Black Walnut still needs super sharp tooling to cut well and prevent breakout. Our staves are 40 mm wide in our premium Walnut worktops and on average 70 mm wide in our deluxe, and vary from 120 mm to over 1200 mm, so the quality of the timber is immediately obvious.
