Where Walnut Comes From
While famous for its meaty nuts, the walnut tree is also a centuries-old source of building material. The two main varieties of walnut lumber are from the English walnut and Black walnut trees. English Walnut, originally from Persia (Iran), was brought to the islands of the United Kingdom by conquering Roman armies. Black walnut is native to North America, and thrives in the cooler climates of the North East and New England. Other varieties are grown and harvested throughout the world
How Walnut Veneer is Used
Walnut veneer may be used on its own, applied over lesser woods to give the appearance of solid walnut lumber. It is also commonly used in marquetry, also known as wood inlay, in combination with other hardwoods to create intricate patterns. In this application, the more exotic burled walnuts are very highly sought.
The Future of Walnut
Walnut lumber is growing scarce due to the long maturation of the trees for lumber and their susceptibility to disease. A single high quality, burl walnut log, suitable for making veneer, can bring a price in the thousands of dollars. Demand for walnut lumber may outpace the replanting of walnut groves due to the expense, long term commitment, and risk of investing in the planting of new walnut groves.
American Walnut is one of the most versatile, varied, and well-loved veneers. It is light gray-brown to purplish-brown wood. Quartered, the veneer presents an even grain, fairly straight throughout.
American walnut veneer, also called black walnut veneer, originated from the east of U.S., is a hardwood veneer mainly used for furniture surface making and interior decoration. It has smooth and even lines and stability nature, with very good painting and dyeing performance, and perfect surface effect will be gained after polishing.
Its rich brown color, typically stained dark, makes it a good choice for library paneling or large furniture. In veneers, walnut has been a common choice for centuries. The most popular form of walnut veneer is walnut burl. Walnut has an unusual growth structure that allows individual small growth rings inside the normal pattern. When sliced thin, these burls can create beautiful patterns that have been used as decorative accents on all kinds of furniture.
