Butternut wood has a deep honey-tan base with tobacco-brown highlights. Known for showing vibrant shifting grain patterns, this wood brings a warmth and beauty to any large wall or floor.
A little known North American hardwood in the black walnut family, Butternut is an east coast tree growing from Ontario to Georgia. Never a dominant species, and typically coveted as a nut tree, Butternut has recently been devastated by an air-borne fungus similar to the blight that killed the Chestnut and Elm trees years ago. As a species Butternut has been called a "domestic exotic”, and it may be one of the most interesting woods you have never seen.
We salvage the trees in the forest after they have been killed and carefully grade and slowly cure all material in our covered lumber sheds before kiln drying to industry standards. This produces extremely stable planks and every order is truly hand selected. We think you will love the results. We produce flooring and wall paneling, as well as paperback veneer sheets and cut-to size plywood tiles.
Every piece of every order is custom selected to complement your design direction. Let us help you make your next project even better.
