Wood species / Trade name:
- German: Amerikanischer Nussbaum
- French: Noyer Américain, Noyer US
- Chinese: 美洲黑胡桃
Character / Color:
The structure and color of the American black walnut can easily be distinguished from the European variety. With its strong gray color and clearly striped or figured grain, the veneer creates a dignified ambience. However, the fingernail-sized ingrown particles known as "bird pecks" can be found in the American walnut, which reduces the quality and complicates the search for wood that can yield veneer of high quality.
