Bastogne Walnut is also known as “Paradox” Walnut. A cross between Claro and English Walnut trees, this hybrid species grows faster than either of the parent breeds, yields harder lumber, but very few actual walnuts (hence the paradox). Luckily the Bastogne variety has proven very fruitful in our wood shop. For example, these custom bedside tables showcase the rich contrast between the Bastogne’s figured sapwood and the warm grayish tones of the striped heartwood.
