I would give Waterlox OFS a shot on a test piece. Go to their site and learn about the application. It is a wipe on and takes several coats to equal one brushed coat.

Never tried Waterlox before. I’ll check it out.

I used watco natural Danish oil on a walnut gun stock I made and I thought it really brought out the grain and the color in the walnut nicely.

I’d also use Waterlox Original. Prior to that, I’d use my favorite Walnut dye blend to darken it a bit. I use Watco Danish Oil as a primer coat/sealer prior to the Waterlox application. Just be absolutely sure the Danish oil is completely dry before you put on the Waterlox.

I haven’t had the pleasure of using Waterlox but I know it is a quality product and I’m sure it would be a beautiful finish on that walnut.

Those gun stocks look great moosesman! So that’s a couple votes for Waterlox. Stuff’s not cheap! Still might have to give it a try.
