Beyond Beautiful: Introducing new salvaged walnut architectural panels

By KC

"Exquisite" is the word a local designer used to describe these plywood panels when he was privy to a sneak peek last week.  

We're happy to introduce them to you this month and share the amazing story behind them:

The walnut veneers used in these panels are from a single large tree that was salvaged in Douglas County, Oregon.  This antique tree was brought to Oregon by some of our state's first settlers, who hoped to recreate the familiar landscape of the East Coast and reap an annual bounty of nuts.  More than a century later, the walnut tree succumbed to old age and had to be removed from the property before it caused damage or injury.

This one special log yielded beautiful veneers that we pressed onto FSC Certified, NAUF cores (also manufactured in Oregon).

SPECIFICATIONS:
Certification: FSC Certified, NAUF
Available thicknesses: 1/4", 1/2", and 3/4" (1/4" on MDF, 1/2" and 3/4" on plywood)
Panel size: 4' x 8'
Veneers: 1/40" thick
Grade: Both sides with "A" grade veneers: Book-matched planks with vertical grain on one side, random-matched planks on other side
