One of the factors that make walnut wood attractive and increase its efficiency is the very attractive and special color of this type of wood. When the walnut wood dries, its color will change. For example, if you allow walnut wood to dry gradually in the open air, away from direct sunlight, it will turn dark purple. Such a color is definitely very attractive and its application in wooden home appliances makes the environment look more beautiful.
