A Brief History of Walnut

It started with a musket. And it changed our world. Circa 1774, colonial militias rose up against tyranny and triumphed. Against their shoulders were walnut gunstocks, part of the muskets that would help win the American Revolution. A close-grained wood, walnut rarely splintered or chipped. And its water resistance prevented warping as it was honed into shape. For that reason, the era’s lumberers reserved this wood for gunmakers. When the British required colonists to surrender the firearms, we refused. And the independent militia was born. These “minutemen” learned to fire in formation, taking down a full battalion of enemies at a single shot.
