Black Walnut Conference Table FAQs

Is Black Walnut Good For Tables?

Black walnut is a highly regarded choice for tables due to its exceptional qualities and aesthetics. Its beautiful appearance, characterized by rich, dark brown to purplish-black color and striking grain patterns, makes it visually appealing. Not only is black walnut visually striking, but it's also a durable hardwood that can withstand daily use and resist wear and tear. Its workability allows for intricate detailing and crafting into various table designs, from traditional to contemporary. Additionally, black walnut is dimensionally stable, reducing the likelihood of warping, and it's a versatile wood that complements a wide range of interior styles. Furthermore, its availability from sustainably managed sources makes it an environmentally responsible choice. While it may come at a premium price compared to other wood species, black walnut is an excellent selection for those seeking a beautiful, durable, and versatile wood for tables.

Other types of walnut also make beautiful tables, including European walnut and West Coast-grown Claro and Bastogne walnuts, which have even richer color. CVCF can order these walnuts and create bespoke tables and other pieces of furniture from them. 

Does Black Walnut Make Good Furniture?

Black walnut is a top choice for furniture, particularly tables, due to a combination of exceptional qualities. Its aesthetics are a primary draw, with a striking dark brown to purplish-black color that ages beautifully with the development of a rich patina. The wood's grain patterns, characterized by straight lines and occasional swirls, create a visually appealing and distinctive look. Black walnut is renowned for its durability, making it well-suited for furniture that must withstand daily use. Its inherent strength ensures that furniture constructed from black walnut is built to last. The wood is also easy to work with, allowing for intricate detailing and sophisticated designs. In addition to its workability, black walnut is dimensionally stable, meaning it is less prone to warping, which is crucial for furniture's long-term integrity. Its versatility means it can be used to create various furniture types, complementing a wide range of interior styles from traditional to modern.

What Is The Difference Between Walnut and Black Walnut Wood?

Walnut and black walnut are closely related species of hardwood, and they share many characteristics, but there are some differences between them:

  • Color: The most noticeable difference is in the color of the wood. Walnut, often referred to as “common walnut," typically has a lighter brown color with more subtle grain patterns. In contrast, black walnut, sometimes known as "American black walnut," has a darker brown to purplish-black color with more pronounced and distinctive grain patterns.
  • Grain Pattern: Black walnut is known for its striking grain patterns, which can include straight lines, occasional swirls, and contrasting colors. Walnut, while still having a pleasant grain pattern, tends to be less pronounced and showy compared to black walnut.
  • Hardness and Durability: Both walnut and black walnut are hardwoods, and their hardness and durability are generally comparable. However, some woodworkers and experts consider black walnut to be slightly harder and denser, making it potentially more durable for heavy-use applications.
  • Geographic Origin: Walnut trees are native to Europe and Asia, while black walnut is primarily found in North America. European walnut is difficult to get in North America. This geographic difference in origin can affect the availability and cost of the wood in various regions.
  • Availability and Cost: Black walnut is often more readily available and, in some regions, less expensive than European walnut. This is due to the greater prevalence of black walnut in North America.
  • Uses: Both walnut and black walnut are used in similar applications, including furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and woodworking projects. However, black walnut is more commonly associated with fine furniture and cabinetry due to its darker color and striking grain.

While walnut and black walnut share many characteristics, the key differences lie in their color, grain pattern, availability, and cost. Black walnut is typically favored for its darker color and distinctive grain, making it a popular choice for high-end furniture and woodworking projects. 
 

Reviews From Our Customers

I'm amazed with the quality and craftsmanship of the boardroom river table CVCF made for us! The first time I talked to Sheldon, he asked me what style of table I was looking for and I told him that I wanted a river table 19' long and 5' wide. I also told him that I wanted it to be made in a steampunk style. He wasn't sure what that was, but boy, did he hit it out of the park with the river table he made for us. It has an industrial style base and an elegant top, and so I call it modern steampunk. It was created for shipment so that it arrived without any damage at all. It's absolutely beautiful! Shel, Zack and all the crew did a wonderful job and were great to work with!

Brendan Ganser

Several months ago I found Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture online. I immediately fell in love with their work! I picked up the phone and called them; Shel answered the phone and after a long conversation he helped me narrow down what I was looking for. Shel then invited me to their facility to see how these custom masterpieces are made. That day I picked out the slabs for my river table. I also worked directly with Zach throughout the process. He was very prompt keeping me up to date on how the table was coming. My table was delivered today and it completely blew my expectations out of the water! The whole process was a world class experience! These are GREAT people to do business with, I would highly recommend them!!

Alex Smith

Zach and Shel made me a lovely custom sit/stand desk with drawers and extra wide keyboard tray and matching side table. Everything was done perfectly to the measurements I asked for and Shel picked the prefect wood to match my style. These are perfect pieces that are completely custom.

Lindsey Fowler

I COULD NOT be more thrilled with my resin table from Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the table and I receive SO many compliments from just about everyone that sees it. Sheldon was extremely helpful and personal from the 1st email/phone call. Eric, Sheldon and the entire team was so very helpful and kind! I have been researching and shopping for a resin table for almost 5 years. This custom experience was worth the time! Thank you to ALL!!

Kim Neppl

Working with this team of professionals and even more, so creative group, was an amazing experience from start to finish. I was very specific about what we wanted for our table and base. If I wasn't completely happy with what they sent, they tried again until I knew it was our dream table. It's a one of a kind experience for a one of a kind table! I wanted to add they sent coasters for doing a review and they are spectacular. Like a lil version of our table. Wow just wow

Beth Ross

This is the MOST amazing piece of furniture I have ever seen. I was looking for a unique dining room table and searched several high end furniture websites for ideas. I contacted CVCF and they helped me create this masterpiece of Denali from an abstract concept to the final product. I was involved every step of the way. Pictures do not do this table the justice it deserves. I am beyond happy with this company from the communication, responsiveness, professionalism and of course, the finished product.

Jennifer Lombrano

We looked at a lot of River table websites and YouTube videos before contacting Chagrin Valley. They walked us through the design process and selection of the wood. Since we couldn’t be present for the wood selection we had to rely on them. We wanted the rivers in our area ( Colorado, Roaring Fork, Crystal, and Frying Pan) plus our house depicted. We also wanted our initials as part of the legs. All this was accomplished and I believe we got a beautiful table. The pics I have attached show the table, it’s legs, and the depiction of our house location.

Walter Weathers

We worked with Shel and Zach to design a beautiful custom countertop for a beverage center at our lake house in Texas. We received our delivery yesterday! It arrived ahead of our cabinet construction, so we don’t have completed photos yet. We opened the large well made crate just to confirm all went well with the shipping process. It is stunning, and the workmanship and finish is superb! Zach was a great listener, excellent with follow through, creativity and expertise. Even the FedEx delivery man was amazed. He said, “ I do some wood working, may I touch it to feel the smoothness of the transitions?” The character of the wood, and the finish are just perfect! We can’t wait to see the completed project soon! Thank you so much-we will consider this piece the art in the room! We will add photos when project is completed!

Marjo Richmond

My wife and I just finished a dining room renovation project. Working with Zach and his team was an absolute pleasure. To call the folks at CVCF great woodworkers doesn't seem enough. More accurately, they are artists that use wood, epoxy, and technology to deliver custom works of art. Not only is the finished product first class, but the personalized care and top-notch customer service weave together to make a great story, which is a special part of the process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Jonathan Epling

Every step of the process was great. Shel kept me updated on the process. I told them what I was looking for and they found exactly what I wanted. They called me on FaceTime to allow me to see the wood slab and mailed samples of the epoxy before I made the color selection. The end result is AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture! I would recommend this company!

Gregg Buck

I ordered a custom coffee table and sideboard storage cabinet. The attention to detail and design far exceeded all expectations. I have pieces that will be passed down through generations. The staff is excellent to work and plan with. On both pieces and I now have a cohesive decor. Many, many thanks to Zach and the staff at Chagrin Valley Custom Furniture.
