Cool, I like all the shades of Walnut and especially how dark brown it can get. I like how dark Blackwood is too but Walnut also has some more noticeable grain figuring which I enjoy. My new Waple has the perfect balance of dark and medium to lighter shaded Walnut IMO. The tube in my pics is also Walnut but of a much lighter shade. Thank you for the info. Happy conditioning and cheers my elite friend!
