Butternut is the lightest essence of the walnut family. Butternut is also called white walnut because of its golden-brown colour and is found mainly in New England and New Brunswick. Its rather coarse-grained wood responds well to stains and finishes.
The variation found in the grain of the butternut tree makes it one of the most aesthetically pleasing wood species. Its warm colour emphasizes the natural quality of the wood, and products developed by Victoriaville & Co. bring out its unique and distinctive character.
