We start with carefully selected Walnut logs from upstate New York. Lumber is stored under cover as it slowly air dry for up to two years. Besides starting out with good quality logs proper drying is the most important step in quality control.
Walnut is a beautiful, strong and versatile wood. It comes from a moderate size tree which grows to be about 100 feet tall, with a trunk that can be up to 60″ in diameter. The wood ranges in color from light to dark brown to chocolate brown. The color of walnut varies from species to species and is also affected by the area in which it grows. Walnut wood is warm and rich in color and finishes well.
Walnut is a fine-grained hardwood that is dense and shock resistant. It polishes to a very smooth finish, making it ideal for furniture making and carving.
