My first kitchen cabinets were made of walnut. I was living in NC while in the Navy, back in the 70’s. Bought 1000 BF for 1.00 a bf. What a steal. Still have some scraps. My all time favorite.

Just recently (last three years) been working with some butternut a cousin of walnut. Same grain pattern but much lighter color. Works the same. The first guy I bought it from said it was “white walnut”. No matter it’s great to work so now I have dark and light “walnut”. Who knew.
