Long time passing I got to using Watco Black Walnut or Dark Walnut on walnut. The enhancement is subtle but pleasing to my eye.

After that, one could add any of the topcoats mentioned here.

I am told that the walnut we get from the yards is kiln dried and that air dried walnut yields the more reddish tones. Can anyone confirm that? I’ve worked with both, and I’d prefer the latter but don’t have a good local source.

I really like the results Clint got. What stain product and shade, Clint?
