I can't either. It is beautiful the way it is. I use walnut stain on walnut these days too. The walnut we are getting is steamed walnut and unless you can find Caro walnut it has a sort of "Purplish" color with clear finish. The walnut stain turns it into a dark chocolate color which enhances the walnut in my opinion. Great job on the bear, just love the color.

I'm lucky in that most of the Walnut I buy is from a local sawmill and it's unsteamed, far prettier than steamed Walnut. I've never stained any of that, fwiw - too pretty like it is.

Dan I guess you surprised yourself when you saw it after it was finished.

Reach over your shoulder and give yourself a pat on the back, actually make that two pats, because I really like that one.
