Different Species of Walnut? Or different Finish?
So I've been wanting to build a bedroom suite for my wife and I. (Mainly my wife) haha! And I finally came across a design that we absolutely love.
I know I can build it, as it's a relatively simple design, but what has me baffled to a degree is how to get this soft lighter walnut finish. I've taken a screenshot of a couple of the pieces. They claim it's walnut, which I would agree. But is this a different type of Walnut than your usual dark purplish walnut you buy anywhere? If so where would I source it? Or is there just a finishing technique to lighten walnut?
Or is this your regular walnut just from lighter growing trees? Aka the variance in a species?
I hope you might help bring some insight as I've seen many furniture pieces with this beautiful soft tone, all claiming to be walnut but I have no idea how they would have managed if using the only walnut that seems to be commonly available (as pictured)
Thanks for your time and any help you might have to offer!
