White Walnut is also known as Spanish Walnut or Butternut. It is lighter and more contasted than the well known Black Walnut. The commercial potential of Butternut’s edible fruit (nuts) is generally regarded as being more valuable than its lumber or veneer. Moreover, this specie is currently no longer planted in Europe and therefore the wood veneer of White Walnut is noways a rare product. Therefore, White Walnut Crown Cut can currently only be produced with wild trees. For that reason this wood veneer is full of vagaries of nature. This is the case of the drawings made by the sapwood along the tree lenght due to the natural bending of the log.
