Walnut

American Black Walnut is by far the deepest color of any of the American hardwoods. The grain is closed , similar to cherry or maple, although some boards will have burled or curly grain. The heartwood ranges from a deep, rich brown to a purplish black. However the sapwood is nearly white or tan and can create an extreme contrast when used in a floor. Flooring can be furnished essentially free of sapwood at a modest increase in cost. This is a premium wood, used in very formal rooms or sometimes in an entire house, and often (in narrow widths) as a highlighting border or in other decorative inlay techniques. It is somewhat softer than Red Oak, but even more stable, so it is easily installed and finished.
