Heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. The colour can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is pale yellow-grey to nearly white. Figured grain patterns such as curl, crotch, and burl are also seen.
The grain is usually straight but can be irregular. Has a medium texture and moderate natural lustre.
Black Walnut is rated as very durable in terms of decay resistance, though it is susceptible to insect attack.

Typically easy to work provided the grain is straight and regular. Planer tearout can sometimes be a problem when surfacing pieces with irregular or figured grain. Glues, stains, and finishes well, (though walnut is rarely stained). Responds well to steam bending.
