There are very liquid epoxy products on the market that will take care of your spalted walnut. You mix in a catalyst and just apply it on it. Keep letting it soak in until it begins to puddle up. Let it soak in more and keep doing it until it won’t take any more. It will truly stabilize the wood so it can be workable.
One thing for sure is you need to actually build up the strength of the spalted area or it will basically dissolve like sawdust.
