Circassian Walnut (also sometimes called French Walnut or Common Walnut) can be either flat cut or quarter cut when used for wood veneer. Its coloring ranges from a light gray-brown to dark and warm red-browns, along with irregular streaks of darker brown. Gray, purple and red casts are very common, giving the grain an earthy rainbow palette. Circassian Walnut wood can display beautiful fiddleback figure as seen in our digital wood veneer sample to the left.

These trees are native to Europe, reaching heights of 80-120 feet, with trunk diameters usually between 5-6 feet. A favorite for architectural panels and millwork – acoustic panels, cabinetry, doors, furniture and store fixtures are also all common uses for this species.

Request samples or schedule a visit

Contact us to request samples, to schedule an in-person visit, or a virtual veneer log inspection.

Our Live Veneer Log Inspection service allows you to view a veneer log inspection via a live stream. We also offer the flexibility of sending recorded video directly to you for viewing at your leisure.

Watching a veneer log inspection at your convenience provides the same control as if you were here. You can pause the inspection for longer views of grain structure and color consistency and, if streaming live, request to see logs a second time the moment you need to.

Our facilities are also open for scheduled visits. Please contact your M. Bohlke sales rep or use our contact form to schedule a visit.
