Looking for ideas on where to get strips of live edge walnut. I want to use this as a molding on my next project. Need about 12 feet of walnut live edge. 1 piece needs to be solid six feet long (ideally). None of it needs to be any thicker than 3 inches deep and ideally 2 inches tall.

Most people don’t want the sapwood from walnut, I would think any sawyer could set you up if there was one in your area with some walnut logs. Check local wood supply stores, they should know if there is someone around that can help you. It would cost a bunch of cash, but if necessary you could have it shipped to you by any number of wood stores or sawyers here in Oregon or just about anywhere they grow. Let me know if you want some names.

Most of them steam the walnut to try to bring the color of the sapwood to a darker shade. That way they get more from it.
