Personally I don’t really like the look of filled grain wood. It no longer looks like wood that way… more like plastic with a wood pattern printed on. I like to finish walnut with an amber shellac sealer coat followed by a mid-satin varnish of some kind. And 600 grit is extremely high for regular finishing. 220 or 320 is plenty high enough for a poly finish. I’m no expert, though… try experimenting and come up with your own technique.
