If you love the rich look of this elegant island, it may just be the gleam of the black walnut wood that was used by our friends over at California Cabinets Design. For the finishing touch on this beautiful island, they selected Osborne’s classic Tapered Mission Island leg, part# 1419. We love this design that features two overhangs on adjacent sides, allowing for more seating as well as an open, airy look.
Black walnut is prized by woodworkers for its dark, hard and tight-grained wood. It is a big favorite of DIY woodworkers because it is so easily handled when using just about any type of woodworking equipment. It resists moisture, is very hard and durable, and polishes to a very smooth finish. With so many wonderful qualities, what’s not to like about black walnut?
Black walnut is not readily available since it grows quite slowly, therefore it can be very pricey to purchase! It is naturally dark in color so it stains beautifully. Unlike other woods that darken with age, black walnut will actually lighten a little with age and develop a dark honey color. Osborne offers black walnut for most of its island legs, as well as a wide variety of other wood types.
Osborne Wood Products carries a diverse line of island legs, which are available in at least ten wood types, sanded to 150 grit and ready to finish. These skillfully-crafted island legs are sure to find a home in your next kitchen design.
Island legs come completely unfinished without any holes or hardware. However, with Osborne’s millwork and installation services you are guaranteed a perfect fit! Work directly with a customer service representative to determine if your island leg needs hardware installed, a chamfer, or other services to simplify your design process. Have your legs shipped ready to simply install and finish, using the variety of services offered at Osborne.
