    I can't argue with your photos, Jim, but I've never seen any lightening in color of the walnut pieces I've built from local black walnut that I milled/dried myself. I have a clock and a large bowl...

    For minimal color change blonde shellac or lacquer will do a nice job of bringing out the highlights. For a little more grain accentuation, you could dye it then sand it lightly after it's dry. ...

    I though it might be cherry but wasn't sure because of the fleck. Pretty unusual and awesome stuff. Oh yes, I've been to Certainly Wood just outside East Aurora. It's a 50 mile trip each way but...
