  WALNUT-Wood and Trees
  Walnut Tree


Juglans
Hardwood

The Trees:

American Black Walnut grows in the Eastern US and Canada, bearing edible nuts.

European Walnut and English Walnut are found in Europe, England and are almost identical to American Black Walnut.

Brazilian Walnut (Ocotea porosa) which is sometimes called Imbuia, and and Peruvian Walnut (Juglans neotropica) are South American woods not related to Walnut, but have similar color and properties.

 


Walnut Wood

The Wood:

Walnut's rich color, working properties and weight make it an ideal wood for furniture making and carving. The sapwood is often much lighter in color adding an interesting contrast. Claro Walnut is a highly figured walnut grown found on the west coast of USA and Canada.
