To get an idea of how it will look with no stain dampen, not soak the wood with water. Most walnut will look good with no stain. Be sure to let dry throughly. As others mentioned you will need to seal the wood. Seal all bare wood. The object is to keep out moisture. I like tru-oil myself. Apply enough light coats so little or no orange peel texture is visible. 4/0 steel wool between dry coats and a coat of johnsons paste floor wax as a top coat over a lightly steel wooled coat of oil finish. Do not rush the job.
