Butternut Thin

The White Walnut that is great for carving!

Known as Walnut’s country cousin, Butternut is closely related to black walnut and is a joy to use. Due to a fungal disease, there is a rapid decline in the species and the tree is protected in Canada. The color ranges from light to medium tan with contrasting grain lines that form distinct patterns. The sapwood is a pale-yellow color. The grain is fairly coarse and has a natural luster. 

Butternut is wonderful to work with hand and power tools, although its softness can lead to fuzzy surfaces left behind by planing and sanding. Make sure your tools are sharp or work through to finer sandpapers. 

Be sure to check out our Carving section for a wider selection of Butternut carving options!
