French Walnut

 French Walnut

How do you describe the pleasure we gain from making floors like this? Today, the words fail me, so let me try to explain the process of creation. The task begins when a customer has the courage to specify something unusual and to invest some faith. A whistle stop 2500 mile tour of sawmills specialising in French Walnut was necessary to establish who had the right quality of stock. A second visit to France was needed to make the selection of the boards. Walnut is not grown for its lumber, but for the nuts. Thus the growers are not concerned to produce straight, tall large girth logs. It is easier to collect walnuts from low growing trees, so most are pollarded when young to produce lots of low branches. Approximately 4 times the quantity which was fitted to the floor was bought to ensure that there was enough for the waste and plenty to choose from
