||Butternut (Juglans cinerea)
||Also known as white walnut, oilnut, tropical walnut, nogal blanco, and tocte.
||Grows in United States and Canada.
||Straight grained and coarse-textured with a satiny luster. Light brown heartwood with occasional darker streaks and nearly white sapwood.
||Soft, moderately light, with low strength, stiffness, shock resistance and decay resistance. Quite stable in service.
||Works well with machine or hand tools but softness necessitates sharp cutting edges. Screws, nails, glues, stains, and finishes quite well.
||An excellent carving wood, once highly valued for church altars. Used for furniture, cabinets, paneling, interior trim, veneer, boat building, boxes and crates, instrument cases, trunks, and millwork.
||Resembles black walnut when stained but lacks its strength or stiffness.
