NEWPORT by reSAWN TIMBER co. features wide plank plain sawn character grade American Black WALNUT prefinished with hardwax oil for flooring or wall cladding. The 8” face width showcases the full character and grain pattern that black walnut has to offer.
American Black Walnut is a heavy, strong wood defined by its rich deep browns and beautiful figure. PLAIN SAWN boards are produced by cutting tangentially to a tree’s growth rings producing the familiar “cathedral” or “flame” pattern on the board face. The annual growth rings are generally at a 0° – 30° angle to the face of the board.
The grain pattern of black walnut is mostly straight and open, but some boards have burled or curly grain. our hardwax oil is natural, non-toxic and 100% VOC-free and produces a durable, matte finish that respects the natural look and feel of the wood.
