It’s True! The fruit of the Walnut tree is deemed a ‘super food’.

The Walnut, full of antioxidants, it is of great nutritional benefit to us humans. So it stands to reason that the wood of the tree is a ‘super wood’, full of incredible qualities and of huge nutritional benefit to us humans… well Ok, maybe not nutritional, but undoubtedly of benefit.

How lucky we are to have whole boules like these to offer our creative and industrious customers !

When Tom first found the waney-edge N.American Walnut he knew we wouldn’t be going back to square edge..  and why would we ??

This is the real Walnut… it hasn’t been sorted and graded to within an inch of it’s life. These are whole, intact logs that are genuinely useful to furniture makers and kitchen makers and anyone looking for some continuity of colour, grain, workability but with the real qualities of the species. This is not a timber with all the life and soul cut out of it, it is bursting with life and is crying out for some exciting projects where it can live on.
