General Description: The steaming process evens the colour between the heart and sapwood. More easily available than English Walnut.
European Walnut has a very good steam bending classification, but is liable to blue stain if in contact with iron compounds.
It dries well with a tendency for honeycombing in thicker boards. Medium movement in situ.
The heartwood is durable, extremely resistant to preservative treatment, but the sapwood is permeable. Non-ferrous or galvanised metals should be used.
Family Name: Juglandaceae
Latin Name: Juglans regia
Distribution: UK and Europe
Also known as: English Walnut, French Walnut, Italian Walnut, etc., depending on origin.
