Sawn Prime American Black Walnut (per cubic foot)
Our Rough Sawn American Black Walnut Timber is supplied by the cubic foot in full sized boards. The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 90mm and 150mm, depending on stock availability. The plank lengths tend to be around 2.4 metres to 3 metres, but again may vary due to stock availability.
If you require timber in specific widths or with a fully planed finish, we would recommend our planed all round walnut timber.
Please Note: It is to be expected that the sawn boards will display watermarking due to the kiln drying process. This completely natural phenomenon occurs as the water dries out from the timber. This natural surface marking, along with any others marks, will be removed when you plane and/or sand the boards.
Guide to Cubic Foot Calculation:
An average 2.4m x 5" x 1" board equates to roughly 0.3 cubic foot
Our Rough Sawn Black Walnut Timber is sourced from the very best sawmills in America. The timber is a prime grade though many contain some small knots. The wood can vary from light brown to purplish black with a creamy coloured sapwood. The boards are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory giving an average moisture content of between 9-11%.
It turns, carves, mortises, nails, screws, sands and paints well. Gluing is satisfactory. It stains and polishes easily to a high finish.
