With no substitutions, antique walnut is a rare and beautiful wood indeed. Usually straight grained with a coarse but uniform texture, reclaimed antique walnut combines a beautiful array of colors, from deep rich browns to almost blonde sapwood with purplish undertones. This rare reclaimed wood will change over time, like a fine wine becoming more subtle with age. Prized throughout history as a premier wood for cabinetry and furniture, walnut is a true classic. Reclaimed antique walnut is a prized find in our world, found occasionally in mixed wood barns from the 1800’s where, for convenience sake, the farmer utilized those trees closest to the structure. Good news for us!
