I just completed a walnut dining room table for my own personal use. I tried Minwax sanding sealer for filling the grain and I definitely don t recommend that. It had to be removed and I dropped back to the old standby I learned in high school…walnut sanding dust mixed with poly and mineral spirits. It will do a very nice job of filling the pores. It leaves a nice color and evens out any sapwood without turning the entire table dark. The addition of a second coat really doesn t do anything. It wont make the wood darker. Hard to get the light right at night, but here are a few photos of the finished table:

That is GORGEOUS! I’ll have to re-remember that slurry trick.
