If you have inside space to sticker the walnut-Let me add to all the good advice so far,make sure that the first course of bunks(squares on the ground) are straight,square,and level. Any unevenness will wind up in the dried lumber. Anyway, back to drying,if you can get a temperature differential between the inside and outside of at least 15degrees you can dry the wood a bit quicker.Also the old rule is 1 year to the inch for natural air drying(outside). It would also be wise to invest in a moisture meter.
Hope this helps.
