Description: Goby Walnut has one of the largest selections of Black Walnut Lumber available in North America. Our walnut lumber is known by many names: Black Walnut, Oregon Black Walnut, Claro Walnut, and Western Walnut. In reality, our Walnut is a hybrid of Juglans Nigra and Juglans Hindsii and is commonly referred to as "Claro Walnut". All of our walnut lumber is salvage or hazard wood and is ECO friendly. Goby Walnut specializes in Large Walnut Slabs, Walnut Gunstock Blanks , Instrument Wood/Music Wood and more.
Goby Walnut Slabs are cut from extremely large Claro Walnut (Oregon Black Walnut) trees - some of these trees have unusually large trunks and yield large specialty walnut slabs which can be used for your custom wood working projects. The slabs are air dried for 2-3 years depending on thickness and then sometimes kiln dried. We have some of the largest walnut slabs you'll find anywhere.

We have a huge selection of walnut lumber in the following thicknesses; 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 8/4, 12/4, 16/4 and a limited amount of 24/4.Our walnut lumber has been used by woodworkers across the world to meet the needs of their custom woodworking projects. Some of the common uses of our walnut lumber are: Walnut Bed Frames, Walnut Dining Tables and Chairs, Walnut Coffee Tables, Walnut Jewelry Boxes, Walnut Desks & Walnut Dressers.
We offers high quality gunstock blanks at great prices. Oregon Black Walnut gunstock blanks are rough milled 3 inches thick and air dried for 3 years as band sawn oversize gunstock blanks. We cut walnut gunstocks from only the highest grade walnut trees that are 3 feet or more in diameter. This guarantees high quality, strong finished gunstock blanks. We do not normally kiln dry (K.D.) gunstock blanks, but do operate two dehumidifier kilns if K.D. material is necessary. All grades are available from plain to presentation. We inventory more than 4,000 gunstock blanks in the form of over sized shotgun and 1-piece rifle stocks, and also in nonstandard sizes for muzzleloading rifles and pistols--Fowlers and Jaegers. Pistol grip stock is also available.
Goby Walnut also has an excellent selection of musical instrument wood. Oregon Black Walnut is a Claro Walnut that yields highly figured colorful grain patterns, ideal music wood for high grade musical instruments including acoustic guitars, dulcimers, banjo resonators, flutes and other turned instruments.
Goby Walnut Products is very concerned with the impact we are having on our environment. Our wood comes from local Northwest trees that are either hazard or salvage. Our buildings are heated with offcuts from these trees through a very efficient wood fired boiler system. Side cuts from flooring become butcher block countertops. Walnut planer shavings are a natural weed suppressor and we are developing packaging to sell the shavings as a natural alternative to chemical weed suppressants. The Goby delivery truck runs on bio-diesel and Goby Walnut Products is in the process of "smartwood" certification. At Goby Walnut Products we see no reason why responsible environmental practices cannot co-exsist with successful business.

Great customer service!

After purchasing Black Walnut from Goby numerous times I wanted to write a review because I have been thoroughly impressed with the customer service and also the product. They have a great system going with air drying their wood as well as using the kilns to dry their larger lumber. From the moment I walked in the door until I left, the employees were attentive and very helpful. Great experience and will not purchase wood anywhere else!

I felt compelled to write this after the negative review I found when searching Goby Walnut. I just completed a slab table for a client and it turned out great! This is the third slab I have purchased from them and all have been fantastic - I have yet to encounter cracking or moisture issues. The first slab I purchased had to be re-worked and Art was kind enough to exchange it for a different piece. Their customer service has been great. And I'm not sure if the person below knows.... But lumber has to be air dried before it can be processed, hence why it sits outside. Great company, highly suggest!
Poor product quality and horrible service

I purchased my walnut slabs from Goby this year and immediately wished I didn't. I saw their selection on line, but when I came to their physical location and saw how carelessly they dried their products I realized why the wood cracked later. Stacked in the open air with the NW elements, no attention to detail and horrible customer service. My wood cracked and warped as I tried to make my furniture out of it. SAVE YOUR MONEY and go with the better options like I did the next time.
