Looking for a good walnut texture

Recommended Posts

I have the need to make an entire walnut kitchen and Im having a hard time getting a walnut texture to not look terrible.  Anyone have a good texture / technique for making it look at least decent?

 

Thanks!

Mike

Have you looked at the Wilsonart catalog? or maybe the Formica catalog. They all have wood grain laminates, just adjust texture properties and color to suit.

I am away from my computer right now but as I recall there is a Hi-Res Walnut Sheet in the core catalog that actually looks pretty good... Or maybe I had to tweak it. I guess it don’t remember for sure. I’ll check when I get back to the computer if I remember.

that wilsonart one looks leaps and bounds better than what I've got going on.  I don't think I've tried that one for some reason.

 

Thank you very much for the help!

Chief's Core Library has a Walnut - Fine Rich and a Fine Natural which aren't bad , maybe worth tinkering with?

Here's that one I was thinking of.  I'm not sure where I got it or whether or not I tweaked an existing material or what, but I can't seem to find it in the library anymore.  It worked really well for the last walnut job we did, but do be fair, that job was walnut stained with a walnut stain so it didn't need a lot of grain variation.

Thanks guys for the additional thoughts and contributions.  I'll check those out as well and play around with them, always good to have several different options for the same species.
