Native to California, Claro Walnut, also known as California Black Walnut, is one hardwood that is desired worldwide for its density, beauty and rarity. Its high figure, rich brown colors, and striking grain patterns are used to make beautiful gunstocks and furniture. Its durability has led to a rise in popularity for claro walnut slabs, often finished and used for live edge tables. Its color can sometimes include a grey or reddish cast and is typically easy to work where the grain is straight. Areas of the wood grain that is highly figured may need special attention to avoid tearout. We have a large selection of Claro Walnut products available here that are dried and ready to ship.
