Castaneda dentata

American Chestnut was the quintessential North American hardwood due to its myriad uses. However, at the turn of the 20th century the species was wiped out by a blight and has been unable to make a sustainable comeback. This is an elusive and highly desirable but finite wood, and the only way to obtain chestnut lumber is through building reclamation. Chestnut is still prized because of its sophisticated romantic reddish brown tones and authentic character. Some chestnut planks have more wormy texture which enhances the overall sophistication of this wood. Some of its characteristics include: rich color variations of dark and light tones, light distressing, sound cracks, knots, nail holes and worm patterns.
