Notes
Character / Color:
One of Europe´s fine hardwoods, the walnut is known best for its historical usage in the production of high-quality furniture and items during the Renaissance and Baroque period. This lovely and classic wood has soft grayish brown to chocolate brown and even reddish brown tones and a more or less pronounced sapwood area. The annual growth rings, which are set off by their color, produce a strikingly quilted or striped texture. Numerous variations of this veneer figure are created by more or less distinct nearly black stripes.

Usage:
High-priced furniture, turnery and carved items, gunstocks
