I’m just starting to learn about finishes myself. My first finish project will be my walnut miter saw fence and countertop edging.

I have a good book that I”m going through and I think I want to use multiple thin coats of varnish to fill the pores and get it super smooth. I think a wood paste filler is supposed to do the same thing, assuming it’s transparent. I’m going to try oil-based. Not ready to mess with water based yet.

I’m surprised people are against gloss. I’ve seen some shots of walnut polished to a gorgeous shine.

I just love walnut! Keep us updated on the progress!
