Black Walnut Table Finishing
I am building a black walnut dining table and am bouncing around as to the best way to finish it. I want the dark color to not fade or yellow over time, and I want the top to be durable and able to withstand every day use in a family environment. My current thought is to use Behlen Solar-Lux stain to set the color, then a sanding sealer (Zinsser seal coat), and apply Old Masters gel stain, and finally finish with a brush on polyurethane. I just wanted to throw this out there to the world and get some thoughts or ideas from others that may have more experience. Thanks in advance.
