Species: Walnut, Peruvian Juglans spp.
Also known as Nogal, or tropical Walnut. Heartwood tends to be darker than temperate walnut species, with a deep chocolate brown color, sometimes with a purplish hue. May also contain streaks of lighter-colored wood mixed throughout the heartwood, which can sometimes be extensive and result in a high degree of waste. Grain figuring such as curl seems to be much less common than other walnut species. Peruvian Walnut machines and finishes very well.
