Walnut Solid

Natural, smooth timber finish that is consistent on both sides. Scroll down for more photos.

  • Maximum sheet size: 600mm x 100mm.
  • Maximum usable area: 595mm x 95mm.
  • Thickness: 3.2mm (± 10%). Balsa is available in more thicknesses, but is quite fragile.
    Advantages:
  • Can be easily painted or varnished after cutting.
  • Has a smooth, sanded finish on both sides.
  • Genuine solid timber.
  • Slimmer sheet sizes (100-150mm wide) to keep warping to a minimum.
    Disadvantages:
  • Large pieces (100mm+ wide) may have a tendency to warp as a result of swings in humidity.
  • Cost is high compared with acrylics and timber veneers.
  • Comes with a protective tape coating that will need to be peeled off.
  • Is difficult to capture colour correctly; allow for slight variation from monitor to reality.
