Lumber & Specialty Products


As a longtime member of the National Hardwood Lumber Association, American Walnut Manufacturing Association and the Wood Products Manufacturers Association we take great pride in providing the best quality hardwood lumber available.

American Walnut Company manufactures a variety of North American Hardwoods and as you can tell by our name we specialize in American black walnut. Our mills are centrally located in the heartland of Missouri USA where some of the best walnut in the world grows.

We carefully cut and mill all our own walnut on a 7 ft. band mill. The lumber is then well edged and double end trimmed to a specific length. We then transfer the walnut into specialized steaming chambers to help uniform the colors for a specific length of time to insure the proper steaming process. The lumber then goes into cross circulation steam package dry kilns that have a capacity of more then 700,000 B.F. / 1650 CBM. After the careful process where the lumber is dried to a moisture content of 6%-8%, it is then equalized, conditioned and inspected by or certified lumber graders. We offer a computerized piece tally per unit. Once inspection is complete the lumber is packaged and end painted for shipment via flatbed trucks, containers or vans.
