American Walnut (Juglans) offers rich and varied contrasting tones. Its colour ranges from a beige that’s practically white in the sapwood to a light brown, to chocolate brown in the heartwood. Walnut changes colour moderately over time, becoming a lighter, golden more uniform brown. This wood has a Janka hardness rating of 1010.The Solid wood boards including the finishing stages, such as sanding and the finishing, are entirely factory performed under ideal conditions. These pre-varnished boards are ready to be used immediately following their installation. Each board consists entirely of 3/4” thick solid wood; there is, therefore, no gluing or laminating required.
