I would suggest finding a local sawyer to supply what you are looking for. I have a fair amount of lumber from a walnut tree I had removed on my property last year, but having milled it myself (=HARD WORK), I’m afraid it is mine-all-mine…

Good luck, and nice projects. I too like to see the contrast of sapwood to heartwood in SOME projects.

How much are you looking for and what sizes. I’ve got a fair amount of walnut, But I can’t state as to the amount of sap wood.

Some is air dried for 30 years and other for 6 years.

let me know size wanted and I’ll go look.
