Where does it come from?
North America. The harvested wood is then processed in China, by our FSC-certified supplier.
What is it, actually?
There are many species of Walnut in the world, the kind that we use for our slab tables and other furniture isn’t the one that’s popular for eating though! For more science, read here.
We classify our Mini-Walnuts are single slabs that are below 1.7m x 0.25m wide, and are approximately 2.5cm thick. These are presented in their raw, slab format and are available for customisation projects.
Why choose Walnut?
Subtle and Sexy
If these two words appeal to you, consider choosing Walnut.
Due to its near-black colour tone, Walnut is actually an amazingly neutral slab choice that can fit seamlessly into almost any style of interior décor. On close inspection, however, Walnuts have some of the most interesting and varied grain characteristics that set them apart not only from other types of wood but even from each other. Walnuts are a great choice for anyone who likes the idea of having a relatively clean lines in your interior décor, and doesn’t want to compromise on that truly unique solid wood slab factor.
Primary characteristics: (i) relatively regular edges; (ii) relatively slim profile (2.5cm thickness); fascinating grain patterns; (iv) colour ranges from roasted-caramel brown to deep dark chocolate.
Is it sustainable?
Currently, yes. However, it is a slow-growing type of tree and logging is therefore very carefully regulated. While we do not currently control the entire supply chain, The Table Guy only sources our walnuts from our FSC-certified supplier to ensure that the part of the supply chain we cannot control adheres to internationally-recognized regulations.

How is it processed?
Black walnut timber is currently harvested in North America, and transported to China where it is sawn and kiln-dried.
We order all our timber raw so that we can personally rectify any issues that may arrive during shipping. We have a dry-room on-site as well to remove any excess moisture that might have accumulated during the shipping process.
What finishing do you use?
Currently, we use a combination of polyurethane base with hardwax oil to top it off. We find that this offers the best balance of protection from the rigours of daily use, while enhancing the intrinsic visual and textural qualities of the wood.
We constantly devote resources to research and development however, as we believe that there will always be room for improvement.
By default, we do not use glossy lacquer, and all gaps are filled with black resin. We are happy to accommodate various specific requests, however, so if you have something specific in mind please ask us and we’ll advise!
