W is for Walnut

It’s a dark wood. Not black, more like a rich chocolate brown. Marvelous contrasting wood for poplar. Love the look of these two together. Ebony and ivory-type stuff. Wonderful stripe pattern for the paddle shaft. Lately, I’ve been getting Peruvian walnut. Not sure of the provenance or even of the differences between it and American walnut. It’s proving good to work with and it looks great. So far so good.
