Thanks for sharing your finding. I too had read more than once that steaming moved some of the color of walnut heartwood into the sapwood, as an explanation for alleged decrease of color intensity in the heartwood. Is it possible that steaming decreases some of the heartwood color intensity without leaching it out of the heartwood?
