My parents had a Black Walnut tree in our backyard and we never did find out how to remove those stains.  Thinking back now though, you might not look so much like a walnut-stained piece of furniture if you use furniture stain remover (?).  Good Luck with this one!!
  P.S.  Read the warnings on the stain remover before using, they're extremely caustic!

I don't know of any way, but I would try Eradasol if you have that in 
your lab. I didn't have that when I had walnut stained hands growing up! 
It will eventually wear off!

Guys, I need some help... 
Yesterday I decided to peel and clean some Black Walnuts to plant later. 
Now I've never done this before....My walnut trees came from my 
father-in-law's place years ago, where the trees grow wild in the 
mountains. When the nuts, which look like hard green apples, fell from 
the trees he peeled the thick hard outer cover then cleaned and polish 
the inner nut(taste great)...We were there one Christmas and took 
several nuts home, planted them, and now have several beautiful big 
shade trees. After all these years I decided I needed more trees(lost 
several oaks) and I wanted to replace the oaks with the 
walnuts...........Sooooooo since they are falling now, a collected 
several and started the hard job of peeling.....Under that green outer 
skin you fine a light color(yellow-green) meat covering the nut.....I 
had peeled a few when I saw that my hands were dirty....Well, it wasn't 
dirt.....Seems the clear juice coming from that meat turns brown-dark 
brown after a while.....I have tried everything and nothing will touch 
it.......Surely someone out there knows what to do!!!! HELP!!!!! 

Susan, who should of wore gloves,but who knew.
