I would start with a good coat or two of BLO and after it has dried completely, top coat with blonde or light shellac. The BLO will pop the grain and provide some color. Blonde or light shellac will a little more color (in spite of its name, blonde still will add a bit of color) and time will do the rest. Amber can be pretty dark and will get more so in time. If you don’t like shellac, use a wipe on poly in its place.
