Black walnut is highly prized for its dark-colored, straight grained, true heartwood. It is heavy, strong, shock resistant and yet can be easily split and worked.
Black walnut is one of the most durable hardwoods in the US. The wood can be kiln dried and holds its shape well after seasoning, which makes this wood even more attractive for wood working.
Walnut wood has historically been used for gun stocks, furniture, flooring, paddles, coffins, and a variety of other wood products. Due to its value, forestry officials often are called on to track down walnut poachers in the States.
Not quite as dense as oak this hard wood is a super bow wood, a perfect combination to match the properties of black walnut is hickory. The creamy white hickory on the dense dark brown walnut makes a very attractive bow but also a very good heavy bow combination.
