This Oregon Black Walnut Occasional Table is 48” x 19 ½” x 29 ½”  Oregon Black Walnut is also known as Claro Walnut and Western Walnut. The trees were first planted by settlers in Oregon during 1800s creating orchards, a source for food. Over the past two hundred years they have cross-pollinated. Now walnut from Oregon even though it is labeled as Oregon Black Walnut is typically a hybrid. This table has heavy patterns of claro walnut with unique patterns and spalting that reflects a marbled presentation with swirling brown and black streaks. This Oregon Black Walnut is from an area south of Portland. The legs are designed by Frank Seckler, a metal sculpture in Taos, NM.

 

The inlay includes copper and turquoise. Copper, сuprum, first use dates to 8000 BC as it can be found in nature as a directly usable medium. Turquoise is an opaque mineral that is a blue-to-green hydrated phosphate of copper and aluminum.

 

The finish contains five coats of hand-rubbed Tung oil; sanded after each coat. Tung oil brings out the unique characteristics of the wood. To maintain the beauty of the Oregon Black Walnut/Claro Walnut avoid using cleaning solutions instead use water in a damp rag. Remove the excess moisture with a clean towel. For polishing a beeswax solution such as Howard Feed-N-Wax or Artisan Lemon Oil Wax is good. Just follow the directions from the manufacturer. Questions, you can call us anytime at 206-679-4084.
