Walnut Chess Sets

Submitted by on January 1, 2014 – 3:03 pm

Walnut trees are grown in many places around the world, from southeastern Europe eastward all the way to Japan and even more extensively in the western hemisphere, where it grows from southern Canada all the way south to Argentina. The trees are typically 10 to 40 meters tall. Walnut is particularly favored among furniture makers because of the many attractive properties of the wood as well as its sturdiness. Walnut furniture from the Middle Ages is still around in some cases.

Walnut isn't uniform in color, but it is a wood that becomes more beautiful as it gets older. The grain is straight and fine, though some walnut can be found with wavy grain. This type of walnut comes from trees that have been grown under harsh conditions and which have become twisted and gnarled, and is found in higher-end walnut furniture because of its rarity.

Woodworkers like working with walnut, because it responds predictably to tools. It also holds nails and screws without problems and bonds well with wood glue. It tends to hold on to moisture, and because of this, it stains evenly and holds paint well too. Antique walnut furniture tables are not only sturdy and beautiful, but they can be made in complex shapes because it takes well to steam bending. In fact, that's why walnut was used so often in wagon wheels. In the US, antique walnut furniture tables are typically made from black walnut trees in the eastern part of the country. If you choose to buy antique walnut furniture tables you won't be disappointed in its beauty or its longevity.
