Walnut or Black Walnut is a tough medium density hardwood from North America. It has a beautiful fine, yet open grain and a moderately coarse texture. Typically straight-grained it occasionally contains wavy or curly grains as well. It’s colors range from creamy white sapwood to chocolate brown heartwood, often with a purplish cast, darker streaks or golden highlights. It accepts paint and stain for an exceptional finish. It dries slowly and care is needed to avoid kiln degrade but it has good dimensional stability. The wood develops a rich patina that grows more lustrous with age. Walnut has a Janka Hardness Rating of 1010. It is relatively expensive but as one of the most beautiful domestic hardwoods, it is well worth the cost if you can find it in your budget.

We offer everything from walnut balusters, walnut handrails, and walnut wood stair treads. When viewing a pile of walnut lumber it’s easy to assume it is of poor quality, simply because walnut has more characteristics than you typically find in other hardwoods. Even the best quality walnut may appear to have flaws or defects, but walnut is just different in respect to the grain, colors, and knotty character. Projects made out of walnut may require more cutting, arranging, and flipping of the boards than you are used to because of its variations in color and grain compared to other hardwoods. If you are looking for a quality hardwood but would like a lighter wood with a different grain you may want to look at our more exotic woods like African Mahogany or Brazilian Cherry. When considering purchasing quality hardwood for your stairs you won’t go wrong in ordering walnut stair parts.
