We've always offered black walnut as a choice for our Vermont Woods Studios furniture but to be honest, walnut hasn't been very popular these last several years. I'm not sure why, but lately the tables have turned! Just in the last few weeks we've had more inquiries for walnut furniture than over the past 2 years.
I think walnut is a stunning hardwood. It's a chocolate-brown color and generally much more figured than other local woods we work with. Walnut furniture has great character and richness.
Live edge walnut furniture seems to be what's really on fire now. Our friend and woodworking magician, Dan does a lot of work with live edge walnut. I think he's going to be very busy this year.
