Black Locust hardwood is a pale yellow-brown, and it is very heavy, strong and durable with a close-grain. It is prized for furniture making, flooring, paneling, fence posts and small watercraft. Black Locust is also highly valued as firewood for wood-burning stoves.
The above photo of the wood’s grain was taken from our inventory of slab wood and is just one example of what the species may look like. Color of photos will vary depending on weather conditions on the given day photo was taken.
