We here in the showroom really love the Western Walnut, and so many of our customers do too. One of the finest aspects of this deep, dark species of wood is the fantastic grain patterning, and on paneled pieces the grain is really given a chance to stand out. Every once in awhile, we get a selection of lumber that just blows us away, and that is definitely the case with the panels on the back of this Yoshinaga Desk, currently on the floor. Just look at this amazing grain patterning (please excuse our computer cords)!
