i am humbled after looking at Karson’s pulpit. That is beautiful. I had good luck with a few projects using some native walnut I acquired. I used boiled linseed oil applied liberally, let sit for 60 min, keeping it wet with BLO and then wiped well. Keep wiping any oil that seeps. Waited a week and then used 1/2 Pratt and Lambert #38 varnish and 1/2 paint thinner mixture to hand wipe w/soft cloth, rather than a brush. Wipe and wait for 1 hour and wipe again (No
sanding necessary) Do four coats this way and then let cure for three days and sand lightly w/ 220 paper and repeat process three more times. Turned out to be a great finish. Highlighted walnut features well
