Wood bleach and then stain to pref.... I've done this twice with walnut that was not evenly colored enough for me (and once with sapwood)

The bleach is sold as a "two part" solution. Just follow the directions and bob's your uncle.

Good luck and remember to post pics :)

For walnut I use orange shellac in a one pound "mix". "Bartley's dark wood filler and Bartley's gel stain in a brown mahogany color. I really like the color it leaves the walnut and it will "darken up" the lighter or undesirable colors in the wood.

You might try a mix of walnut and cherry oil based stains, I have used this mix to hide sap wood on walnut.

Bartley's dark wood filler and Bartley's gel stain in a brown mahogany color

I love gel stains.

But y'all might be interested in this article:

http://blogs.popularwoodworking.com/edi ... tains.aspx

Quote:
In late 2007, Bartley Collection Ltd. sold its finishes division to the Lawrence McFadden Company. That company was the sole supplier of Bartley Gel Stains. Lawrence McFadden filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and completely shut down. As of now, there is no Bartley Gel Stains being produced. If you’re casual user or a hardcore devotee, you should buy up whatever inventory you can find.

While there are hopes that the company might reorganize and begin operations again, or that another company might pickup certain products from Lawrence McFadden, we may never see Bartley Gel Stains on store shelves again.


I do not recall if "General Finishes" is still making a gel stain.
