I would be thinking of making a desktop out of the walnut, and maybe even extend it to top a row of cabinets. Use the live edge on the outside.

Try it before you build it, but I think the cherry, if you stained it very red would look beautiful under a really dark walnut top. It would have to go in a room with a lot of light, or it would be too dark. Resaw and bookmatch to make cabinet slab doors.

Another idea is a front door. I just saw a fabulous front door made from 8/4 ash that was sandblasted to have a 3 D grain effect.
