Figured walnut is characterized by horizontal or diagonal lines in the grain pattern of finished wood, making it visually striking because it gives two-dimensional wood surfaces a three-dimensional appearance.
Burled & Figured Walnut is a hardwood that is named due to its grain, cut and innate properties. A burl is a tree that is grown in a deformed manner with a rounded outgrowth or tree trunk that is filled with small knots. Burled & Figured walnut, because the grain is interlocked, is averse to splitting and very dense. We here at Barrington Hardwoods have a great selection of burled & figured walnut boards and turning blanks available for sale.
