This yellowing of walnut is interesting. I have never worked with fresh cut walnut. Every time I luck onto a bunch of black walnut it is stuff that has been drying for at least 10 years or more. I have known several people that had a big walnut tree milled, stacked it up and then lost interest and ended up with the wood.
I also cant seem to get any that the sap wood wasn’t completely removed. I have seen some projects that were done with a little sap wood left in place and I really like the look. Apparently, sap wood on walnut is very objectionable around here….I hope it is an aesthetic thing and not for some structural reason.
