Agree with TheFridge.

Walnut is a relatively soft wood so you’ll want a hard finish and I would go for polyurethane. If necessary you can seal the tung oil with a coat or two of blond shellac which has universal compatibility, then top coat with poly. Don’t rush it. Also I recommend picking up Bob Flexner’s book on finishing, it will put you way ahead in the game.
