Black Walnut sample
Review by  BeachBumsSTT from Miami, Florida
I ordered a sample to see if it would work to replace a small piece that had fallen off of a 60 year old dresser. The sample did not have the exact grain I was looking for, but the sample was high quality and the delivery and service from Woodworkers Source was excellent and exactly as advertised. I will use them again!

I needed two small pieces of Walnut for a project, not umpteen board feet, and the wood sent by Woodworkers Source fit the bill in terms of amount needed and quality. Thank you.
