Walnut is one of the most durable of the domestic commercial woods. The wood is heavy, hard, and stiff and has excellent dimensional stability. There is a distinct difference in color between the nearly white sapwood of walnut and the heartwood, which ranges in color from a deep, rich dark, almost chocolate brown to a purplish black. The wood often has a purplish cast with dark streaks. The grain of walnut is mostly straight and open, though some boards may have a grain pattern that is burled or curly.
