Walnut comes in many varieties from America to Europe.

American Walnut is often a warm yellow-brown to purple-brown colour with a straight grain.

European Walnut tends to vary greatly from tree to tree in terms of colour and pattern. From light grey-brown to dark brown with dark grain and irregular markings.

Walnut trees often develop large burr growths which when veneered show beautiful rich coloured swirls.
