I generally stay from the dark stains on walnut. Plain Natural stain or linseed oil gives a nice finish that can be followed up with poly urethane. Another quick way to put a nice warm color of finish on walnut is to use dilute amber or garnet shelac diluted with equal parts of alcohol. Being shelac this finish is not as durable but can be followed up with poly urethane to increase the durability.
