EXOTIC WOOD: CLARO WALNUT (Juglans hindsi) is a unique Walnut species that grows right around the area where Cook Woods is located. Combining beautiful violet and brownish black streaks and wild figured or burl eyes, Claro walnut is favored for high end veneer for cars, jets, turned articles, and exquisite jewelry boxes.
