No personal experience, but I've been studying the Grafter's Handbook (e-book only costs like $4), and recalled it giving a detailed explanation of how to graft walnuts on small seedling rootstock, so I looked it up for you:





I think it also recommended patch/inlay types of grafts for larger stock.

Thanks for the reply and for taking time to search the info for me !! Those types of grafts seem to be done in summer, at first I looked at the incisions and thought ,wow this cust will cost me a finger or two ..haha ,then I read they are made on new tender growth and it cleared to me ...
I will try them in summer on the rootstocks that do not sprout from the spring grafting ...

I found a pretty informative video , nicely explained about grafting walnut with dormant scion and active rootstock...

The video you found is very good but I take this opportunity to tell you how to find information on greffer.net

Well go look here, it's crazy the number of explanations we give on greffer.net

Brief 1 ) section article
https://www.greffer.net/

Then you have several categories ( catégories ) and I advise you to take a look at the category multiplication technique ( catégorie technique de multiplication ).
For information on each grafting technique .
https://www.greffer.net/?cat=3
ex
greffe anglaise compliquée or in english whip and tongue graft technique.
https://www.greffer.net/?p=627

2) category grafting of fruit trees ( catégorie greffage des fruitiers ) and here look for the name (botanical name) walnut = juglans regia .

3) juglans regia
