Please note:  We do not steam our walnut.  Most kilns steam their walnut which allows the black heartwood to bleed into the white sapwood which
produces a better yield for them.  The problem is that the heartwood gets washed out on color.  Instead of steaming we rip away the white sapwood
on at least one side leaving you a true black walnut color.
