Jewett Farms + Co’s Old Growth Walnut flooring is known for its dark tones and beautiful grain configurations. It is a strong, hard wood yet despite its density, walnut is still relatively light and easy to work with. Walnut also has great shock resistant properties that have historically made it a good choice for gunstocks and turnings. A combination of the tree’s slow growth and society’s over harvesting has made this beautiful wood difficult to come by. Our Old Growth Walnut floor planks are harvested from century old trees that have fallen or naturally come to the end of their lives.
Jewett Farms + Co’s selection of Old Growth Walnut flooring is popular for both contemporary and historic home designs. Jewett Farms + Co offers two versions of our popular Old Growth Walnut flooring from our New England headquarters.
Slow growth (old growth) walnut’s natural hues are refined and unique. The deep chocolate tones of the heart wood and the rich caramel of the sapwood are perfectly preserved by our steam free manufacturing process, allowing the depth of color to shine through.
Old Growth American Gunstock Walnut has a deep purplish chocolate hue with some lighter tones mixed in from the outer sapwood. Walnut is strong and durable with a tight grain pattern and some knots and sound checking.
