I like to fill the grain with Art's stock filler / Walnut stain . Then seal inside and out with Permalyn sealer . Mask ckeckering after sealing . I use Pro-Custom oil from Brownells . It's a Urethane modified Tung oil with the best features of both . I apply six base coats rubbing in as much as it will take with my fingers , buffing with 000 steel wool between coats . Then I apply 2 coats of finish with the same process then lightly wet sand every third coat with 1000 Grit. Repeat till you have the depth you're looking for . If you feel the need , apply one or two coats of 50-50 oil and mineral spirits to the checkering , don't over do ! Nothing says ROOKIE like checkering full of finish !
