A client had asked for a flat grain walnut island containing little to no sapwood (the light colored wood found in walnut) to be finished with a matte finish of oil and wax. The black walnut, which overhangs the cabinets on two sides to allow for seating, is an excellent dark piece in her very bright-white kitchen.
