Black Walnut

Coffee Table

ORIGIN

Planted in 1869, the Black Walnut once stood adjacent to an old homestead house on a rural farm in Southern Idaho.

Scott first laid eyes on this 147-year-old tree via a Polaroid photo. With it was a handwritten note from the homesteader’s great, great grandson. It explained the tree was pulling apart the stone and mortar of the hand-dug foundation. To save both tree and home, Scott harvested the Black Walnut as three generations of American pioneers of looked on.

CHARACTER

American Black Walnut is highly figured with purple-blue tones and organic grain patterns. This unique hardwood, found in agricultural areas, invites exploration and intrigue into its complex character.

CRAFT

To highlight natural grain patterns, Scott and his team hand-planed the surface, adding butterfly joints to reinforce its strength..
