American Walnut is durable, even under conditions in which decay becomes likely, the benefits of black walnut planed timber are mainly enjoyed for either light construction projects, high-class joinery, or in the making of quality home furnishings. The heartwood itself is strongly resilient towards decay, although the sapwood can be targeted by powder post beetles.
Typically certain species of American hardwood such as Walnut are shipped into the United Kingdom as FAS 1 face or better, using the internationally recognised NHLA (National Hardwood Lumber Association) grading rules because they are fruit woods with much smaller trunks, more sapwood, more knots etc.
FAS 1 face allows for only the best face to be 83% clear of knot and the reverse face 50% clear and the sapwood is not considered a defect, especially in Walnut and Cherry, Walnut is steamed which helps blend the colour of sap and heart.
Overall, American Walnut is a strong timber with low stiffness, and moderate bending and crushing capabilities. It is also a good choice for steam bending.
