You may be able to buy cheaper Walnut worktops, but we urge you to compare samples first. You will really see the difference it makes, versus lesser quality alternatives, when you buy top grade, properly selected and colour matched, North American Black Walnut. The small difference in price really does create a huge leap in quality, which is why we exclusively use American Black Walnut for all our solid Walnut worktops.
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.
As standard our worktops are supplied sanded ready to oil with square edges. Please see our Bespoke Worktop Service page for information regarding our bespoke worktop services.
Our workshops can make up a Walnut wooden worktop to almost any size and shape. We have made Walnut worktops over 6 metres long and over 2 metres wide. As well as all manner of sink cut outs, corners, curves, drop downs, mitre cuts and finishing detail, we can also oil the wooden worktops so they are ready for immediate installation. We are happy to do as much, or as little work as you would like us to do.
White Oak is fine around under mounted sinks once properly oiled. If you are cutting the Walnut worktop yourselves, make sure you use very sharp tooling indeed, and expect it to be blunt by the time you have finished.
An alternative to an oiled finish is our extremely hard wearing, low maintenance nano-coating treatment.
