Walnut ranges from light to dark brown and at times has very subtle shades of deep purple. When finished with oil, the grain of the walnut brightens and pops in unpredictable and mesmerizing ways. Walnut is possibly the most versatile of all the woods as far as its ability to complement classic and modern settings. The grain patterns are very unique to each board. Large swirl, wave, and knot patterns are common. These tables are lighter to carry than our oak and mahogany tables, and typically thinner than our reclaimed tables by about ¼ to 3/8 of an inch.
