WALNUT, PERUVIAN

Juglans neotropica

THE TIMBER:
This exotic and imported hardwood is a member of the Walnut family. This wood very much resembles American Walnut. Itís color is dark brown with a blackish striped figure. The grain is straight to wavy and the texture is rather coarse. A good way to save a little money and still have Walnut, while not exactly the same, it is a great substitute.

WORKABILITY:
This wood works easily with both hand and machine tools. Takes nails and screws well and holds joints perfectly. It finishes cleanly and planed and sanded surfaces have a silken luster. Glues and polishes well.

USES:
Furniture - cabinetmaking - musical instruments - gun stocks - turnery - carving - veneers and marquetry.
