Black Walnut Furniture Squares: 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 30"

These turning squares are cut from premium kiln dried lumber. They're ready to be turned into furniture spindles, table legs, small accessories (letter openers, utensils, etc), and other fine woodworking projects.
 
Why Choose Black Walnut?

One of the most enjoyed American hardwoods for its fine-yet-open grain, unique patterns, and bold dark color. Walnut is easy to cut, shape and sand, and the wood takes on an amazing look with a clear finish.

Heartwood/Sapwood Content?

We stock walnut lumber with one of the highest possible heartwood specifications that money can buy, called 90/70. That means 90% heartwood on the face, and 70% on the back. While the heartwood content may be greater on some boards, we can not guarantee 100% heartwood.

very satisfied
Review by  George from TX
Very good selection, perfectly straight and square. Freight was not cheap but not unexpected. This was sort of a test order for me and I was very satisfied with the quality, price, and shipping time.

Black Walnut Furniture Squares: 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 30"
Review by  Jdavis37 from NC
Sometimes, less is more so please consider this shorter review as indicative of that. The Walnut was very high quality overall. Very little sap wood, no cracks, etc. I had 1 piece in the original order that did have more curvature than I could use. I sent a photo to them and a few days later the replacement arrived, free of any additional charges. Product and service in particular were great. I would highly recommend. The risk is low, the product is good and the service is great. The latter part is what separates the best buying experiences from the worst!

Decent selection
Review by  Anon E. Moose from New England
I purchased 2 sets of 15 pieces of this walnut for two multi-level amp/home audio stands. The primary amplifier is almost 130lbs, so a lot of support is required. The first order received was consistent with WWS quality. In the second batch, however, there are a couple of squares that have sizable saw marks and a couple that are noticeably warped. I will have to use those pieces to set my dado stack and play with different router bits, but was hoping to have enough left over for a new nightstand for my better half.
