Many of our black walnut dining tables and benches are designed using the natural live edge of the slabs. The natural edge allows the beautiful wood grain to flow to the edge in a natural real design.  Mixing the natural edge table top with contemporary or modern legs creates beautiful “Sophisticated Rustic” signature black walnut tables & furniture designs.

American black walnut is superior to many other woods due to its versatile nature. American walnut trunks grow traditionally straight and clear of many side branches.  This creates the highest grade lumber. Black walnut wood is a very durable, medium density wood that allows the grain to be sanded from either direction. This allows the black walnut dining table tops to be finished to a soft, warm luster.

Notice the lighter wood on the edge of the tables and benches.  This is the outer edge closest to the bark of the tree.  The lighter wood on the edge of the wood is called the trees’ cambium layer;  This is the newest wood formed under the bark.  As layers added year after year the wood will darken taking on its dark cinnamon cast.
