Walnut tree desk

A few words

alnut tree is quite suitable for cabinet work. It is indeed rather free of stress, and mechanically stable over time against temperature and humidity changes. Besides it is reasonably hard, provides a smooth finish and may display nice dark vein contrasts.

Walnut tree is abundant around Grenoble, related to a long-standing walnut production. Its wood has therefore been long used for doors to buildings and flat and cabinet making in the area.
