I’m thinking several thoughts. Is this going to be kiln dried or air dried, both to my understanding take time.

Is the door exposed to the sun and for how long? The walnut will lighten over time in the sun. Are you planning to do regular yearly maintenance on this door?

Oak and walnut and cedar all have different tolerances and expansion rates. My cedar fences tolerate sun well. Doing better than the treated fence planks.

Might want to ask the people who have the cedar doors what they are experiencing?

Best of luck. Cedar is great in many areas in the home.
