Our premium hardwood is 100% clear grade on one side. You can expect no wane, rot, splits, cracks, checks, chipouts or pith.
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.
One of the seven walnut boards was so severely warped at its center that I was forced to cut out several inches in the middle, creating two shorter boards. The warp was much too severe for my jointer to solve. I build one-of-a-kind gaming boards ( https://www.keithminnionstudio.com), and warped wood is useless to me. The other six boards were as advertised and perfectly useful. However, how this warped piece got past your quality assurance employees is beyond me. It is enough, unfortunately, for me to hesitate ordering from you in the future.
American Walnut trees grow in eastern mixed hardwood forests. They grow tall and straight. Walnut hardwood trees are also one of the least species planted and harvested out of all hardwood species.
