If you want make a table in May then you better get it to the kiln because if it takes 10 weeks you won’t have it back until mid April. Other wise air drying will take 2 years. I would not try accelerate air drying, you just get cracks and all kinds of warp and the interior wood may not still not be dry. Moisture in wood has to move through the cell walls molecule by molecule, give it time. Another option is to just go and buy some kiln dry walnut for your brothers table and let the slabs dry on their own until they are ready. That’s what I would do.
