Walnut Countertop


Black walnut wood adds a luxurious, formal feel to any room. Commonly used for musical instruments and formal furniture, a walnut wood table top would be ideal for elevating a dining room table or adding rustic elegance to a kitchen wood countertop remodel. Looking to upgrade your business space instead? Walnut wood table tops also make great conference tables, lunch room tables, or restaurant tables for visiting customers. 

Walnut is commonly thought of to be a darker wood, but it also has light options available as well. The sapwood (the outer layer of the tree) of walnut wood is a creamy white, while the heartwood (the wood at the center of the tree) is dark chocolate. Our walnut butcher block countertops are crafted with the face grain on the top and the edge grain (or vertical grain) along the sides. 

All our countertops are created with high quality, craftsmanship and are built with durability in mind. Our walnut wood countertops come as sanded smooth or with their original rustic surface. We’ll cut the wood tops to your specifications to fit any diy project, and can even add cutouts for kitchen countertops, bar tops, and island tops.

Easy Installation

Proper installation is the key to success for any project. Walnut wood countertops are easy to install and we’re happy to help provide support along the way.

Low Maintenance

All our wood countertops are low maintenance and easy to care for! Depending on the oil finish, the surface can be re-oiled over time to keep the surface looking great. A soft towel soaked in warm water and gentle dish soap will work well for daily cleaning and prevent the finish from breaking down over time. Avoid using chemical cleaners and wax based cleaners as these will shorten the life of the finish.

Durability

As one of the top rated woods on the Janka Scale, walnut wood is highly durable and strong. It is also resistant to decay and doesn’t usually warp due to changes in humidity. Choosing this wood species for your next countertop project would be a solid wood option designed to stand the test of time.

Appearance

Walnut wood is a high quality wood species that is typically straight-grained with occasional waves which add an attractive feature to our wood countertops. It also holds stain very well and has an exceptional finish. Bring a luxurious tone to any room where you choose to feature walnut countertops!
