A member of the Walnut family, Butternut, is often referred to as “White Walnut,” because of its light tan to cinnamon-colored heartwood. With a cathedral like grain pattern, our Butternut is full of character and can make your project stand out from the crowd. Expect boards to have natural features such as live edge, knots, wane, pith, worm holes, rough edges, and/or splits.

Boxes are packed with two boards that are surfaced-2-sides and come 1 inch (actual 15/16") thick and range from 8 to 12 inches in width. Select your size preference in length by choosing between 24 inches, 45 inches or a combination of one 24 inch board and one 45 inch board. Our hardwood isn’t a finished thickness (hit or miss) and may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your boards to fit your project.

Live edge Butternut

These boards are absolutely beautiful and will some very nice serving trays and cheese boards

Pat McPhillips
Live edge?

Thought I would try these for making some charcuterie boards. Some of the boards had live edge but the majority of the largest board was just a crushed edge. I have not bought live edge before so I didn’t complain. I am trying to decide on how to use the damaged section, probably just cutting it off and making a one side live edge charcuterie board. Like the look of the Butternut though.

Received order and it is exactly as described. Never worked with Butternut before and have learned a few things already. Can’t wait till it’s finished.

Premium Quality

Our premium hardwood is 100% clear grade on one side. You can expect no wane, rot, splits, cracks, checks, chipouts or pith.

Kiln Dried

Kiln drying allows us to control the air flow, temperature and humidity so that the hardwood dries 6%-8% uniformly and can be finished to a smooth surface.


All lumber starts off rough. We surface two sides to a smooth surface so it’s easier and quicker for you to start on your project.

Walnut Tree



American Walnut trees grow in eastern mixed hardwood forests. They grow tall and straight. They are also one of the least species planted and harvested out of all the hardwoods.

⚠️ WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products can expose you to wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to cause cancer.  Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask or other safeguards for personal protection.  For more information go to

At Forest 2 Home, our lumber is S2S (surfaced 2 sides), unless otherwise noted, and is commonly referred to as hit or miss. Hit or miss markings are not defects and are totally normal in the planing process.

Generally, you can clean hit or miss up beautifully at 13/16" or to your preferred thickness at home, which is what we mean by "Our hardwood isn’t a finished thickness (hit or miss) and may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your boards to fit your project."

Have any questions about hit or miss? Email us and a Forest 2 Home team member would be happy to help.

Right below our Premium grade is our new Character grade, which can include knots between 1/4" and 2", bark, and wane. You can still expect no splits. We have Character grade boards in several sizes and species. This grade is perfect for unique statement pieces. Shoot us an email at to learn more, see photos, and place a custom order.

A board foot is a unit of measurement for lumber. A board foot is calculated by taking the length (in feet) x width (in inches) divided by 12 x thickness (in inches).

S2S stands for surfaced 2 sides.  It may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your project parts to fit your project.

Opposite of heartwood, sapwood is the living part of the wood, commonly found near the outside of the log and has a white coloration.

Heartwood extends from the pith to the sapwood. The cells of this part of the wood no longer participate in the life processes of the tree which cause it to have a brown coloration.

Wane is the bark or lack of wood on the edges and corners of lumber. Our team ensures no wane by running our lumber through a planer to create square edges on all sides.

Pith is located at the very center of a tree and composed of soft, spongy cells. It has a greater tendency to crack and is unstable. All of our wood is thoroughly inspected to make sure no final board contains pith, leaving you with a durable hardwood board.

Yes, we shrink wrap the boards together to eliminate any boards shifting during transit. We also use edge protectors to protect the corners and edges of your hardwood against any damage.

Our grain guide has information about each species and also has a grain picture to help you identify each hardwood species.
