Perhaps you should consider using butternut instead of walnut for the project.

Thanks Ron, i’ll definitely consider that next time. Right now the desk is pretty much done though.

My plan right now, based on advice here and a bit of Googling, is to try the light shellac that Clammy recommended, followed by the water based poly that I already have on hand. Possibly with a bit of sanding after the shellac coat. Going to pick up some shellac on my way home tonight and give it a try on a tester.

I’ll try to remember to share my results here.
