I have used epoxy on a walnut coffee table and then used polyurethane on top with good results. Also, maybe you already knew this, but you can actually add a little wood stain to the epoxy to color it so it blends in better with the walnut color and is less noticeable. This is what I did and it has held up great for over 7 years now. I wouldn’t bother with the natural stain myself, just go with the poly. I would recommend thinning it down before applying it. You will end up with a much smoother finish without any brush marks. The poly straight from the can is too thick. As far as I know, poly is one of the strongest finishes, but beware, since walnut is somewhat soft, it will still dent if something hard is dropped on it.
