GG Joinery offers Walnut worktops.
Our full stave wood worktops are constructed from wide planks of American Black Walnut that run the full length of the worktop to ensure maximum durability and strength throughout years of constant use.
All Walnut panels and Walnut worktops are supplied fully sanded to smooth, 180 grit finish, ready for oiling without any additional preparation.
American Black Walnut is used in very high-end joinery and furniture.

||Heartwood can range from a lighter pale brown to a dark chocolate brown with darker brown streaks. Color can sometimes have a grey, purple, or reddish cast. Sapwood is pale yellow-gray 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 luster.
||Black Walnut is rated as very durable in terms of decay resistance, though it is susceptible to insect attack.
||Furniture, cabinetry, gunstocks, interior paneling, veneer, turned items, and other small wooden objects and novelties.

||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.
