There are several varieties of walnut wood from which our urns are made, depending on the manufacturer. Walnut is a dark wood, and most American walnut varieties grow with either a straight grain or a very distinctive and highly figured grain. Both grain types result in a beautiful finished product, and you can see whether a particular wood urn is made with straight-grain or variable-grain walnut by looking closely at any product photo with decent resolution.
The hardness, strength, stability, and heaviness of walnut wood contribute to its legacy as one of the largest hardwood trees grown in the United States and our most popular type of wood for our funeral urns. Below you will see a small sample selection of just a few of our walnut urns. The images below will give you a good idea of the variety of shades and grain textures available, as well as the number of different wood urn designs that we sell.
