American black walnut is a medium to large hardwood, native to the eastern regions of North America. Its heartwood varies from a golden to rich chocolate brown shade, occasionally with narrow streaks of a darker purplish-brown. Sapwood is a distinctive creamy white color. American black walnut is a fine and normally straight-grained timber, although occasionally it has an attractive wavy or curly grain, giving it a highly decorative design.
Because of its appearance, resilience, and ready workability - being only moderately hard - American black walnut is a fantastic cabinet-making timber. It performs well with both machine and hand tools and also can be polished to a high finish. It is also a great wood for carving and turning and is suitable for steam bending. It glues sufficiently if conditions are carefully controlled. It is suited to high-end cabinetwork and is a wood of choice for gunstocks. The timber is also utilized for doors, flooring, joinery, moldings, and turnings.
