Walnut Wood Turning Blanks - Lumber Squares
Black Walnut (juglans nigra) is the king of all North American hardwood species. Our walnut lumber is produced through careful log selection, steaming for uniform color, air drying, kiln drying, stress relief and final inspection before we bring it into our dimension mill where it is meticulously machined to size. Our dimension products achieve the highest quality, stability and color consistency that the industry has to offer.
Walnut is well known for its strength, machinability, shock resistance and warmth to human touch, in addition to its popular dark brown color. It is an ideal choice for fine furniture, table and bar counter tops or as an accent to mix with other wood species. It is also commonly used in the automobile industry, knife making and for gunstocks for its luxurious appearance.

Working with Walnut Lumber
Due to its straight grain and consistent texture, dimensioned black walnut is typically very easy to machine. While we prefer oil and wax as a finish to show off its beautiful natural grain and character, black walnut will accept other stains and finishing materials such as lacquer and polyurethane.
We recommend that you always wear a protective mask when working with wood, as breathing the dust may be harmful to your health.
