Walnut wood is dense, tight-grained, hard, and dark. It is widely praised by woodworkers because of the strength, colour and grain. The timber of the wood is fairly tough, hard, and strong, with a moderately coarse grain, but easy to work. When polished, it has a very smooth finish, and the colour of the material varies from a cream white to a dark chocolate brown with darker streaks running through it. Walnut is often found in objects like upscale cabinets, kitchen accessories, benches, and natural wood flooring. There are different types of walnut trees, so the wood differs from the area where the type of tree originates from.
