Walnut is a tough wood with medium density, bending and crushing properties, with low stiffness and moderate shock resistance. Walnut machines well and can be worked relatively easily with either hand or machine tools. A moderate blunting effect is to be expected on cutting edges. It has good steam-bending properties, holds nails and screws well, and can be glued satisfactorily. Walnut can be stained or polished to an exceptional finish and develops a rich patina that gains luster as it ages. Medium to dark stains are most popular for finishing Walnut.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.
To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:
- Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.
If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
