The Look of Walnut
American Walnut is a wood with moderate hardness. The color difference between its sapwood and heartwood is very pronounced, which results in significant variations in color and grain between boards. Walnut shows minimal color variation when exposed to intense light. Unlike other species, walnut tends to lighten over time.
Walnut sapwood is creamy white and sometimes tan, with heartwood ranging from rich dark brown to purplish black.

The Facts on Walnut
American Walnut is found primarily in the eastern United States, but it is also present in the American Midwest. Walnut can attain a height of 37 m [120 ft.] and a diameter of 1 m [3 ft.].
Marks, scratches, and imperfections are more obvious on walnut because of its hardness and density. A matte finish will help make marks less noticeable.
