Butternut Woodturning Blanks


Butternut woodturning blanks work easily with both hand and power tools. The coarse grain of butternut, and its softness, requires sharp tools. For best results, turn butternut at a lathe speed of 800-1,000 rpm. If you're a carver, you'll love butternut for its ease of carving and ability to hold small details. This is a good wood for dying.

A member of the walnut family, butternut is often referred to as “white walnut,”because of its light tan to cinnamon-colored heartwood. The sapwood is almost white.
