Found throughout the eastern United States, Black Walnut is one of the few North American species that can compete, both visually and tonally, with genuine mahogany. Black Walnut is generally medium brown to dark chocolate in color, often with hints of black, tan or purple.
It's the perfect wood for beginning builders - it bends like a dream, works wonderfully by hand or machine and accepts finishes well.
While the figure in the raw lumber can often looks subdued, it explodes into a rich tapestry of colors and patterns with a nearly 3-dimensional look under finish.
Many describe Black Walnut's tone as falling naturally between Rosewood and Mahogany. Walnut's low-end response is strong and closer to that of a Rosewood, while its crisp, snappy mids and highs are strikingly similar to the best Honduran Mahogany.
Taken as a whole, Black Walnut offers many of the same benefits as the tropical hardwoods at a generally lower price point. Gorgeous, stable, and easy to work, it's no wonder this wood has become such a popular choice for boutique builders and large factories alike.
