We need to see photos before you go crazy cutting that thing up. If it is that big and a good quality log, it is worth more to sell it than cut it. The biggest walnut I have run into is 36” inside the bark at 10’. That is a size that had veneer buyers ready to come and see me. Unfortunately, the tree had nails in it, so I wasn’t able to sell it for as much. Also, I have a friend (David Stine) that builds slab tables that would be very interested in slabs from a tree that large and pay for them.
