Appearance -

     The Walnut tree is truly unique in character.  It is one of the only woods whose heartwood has a naturally rich, deep chocolate brown color, while its contrasting sapwood is a pale cream color.  Its almost never stained, but valued for its organic character.  The natural coloring of Walnut is characteristically light, warm and neutral and harmonizes with any kind of decorative color scheme. The grain lines are calm and have a natural flow throughout the hardwood planks, and it is known to finish beautifully.
