    Walnut! More interesting grain and color if you making something out of it, and more BTU's/Hr if you're burning it! :D

    You're right, but that is what Hickory is for!

    Wouldn't make a good ball bat either!

    Oak makes nice kitchen cabinets, lousy back splashes. Walnut makes nice gun stocks. They both make a nice fire. An either/or poll with no qualifiers seems beneath you.

    Why does there have to be a qualifier?

    Which is better walnut or oak. That is your qualifier right there.

    Again what is with all the whinny teenage girl stuff from grown men?

    Nothing wrong with oak but walnut typically has a nicer grain to it.

    I say oak. I have oak floors in my very old home and they are beautiful.
