When wet sanding this way; are you using tru oil on the sand paper for the lubricant? This is what I'm assuming but when I assume...well you know what happens

Default just a thought

Before I started in on my 1st walnut stock, I went down to my local woodworking haunt and procured a 2"x2"x 18" or so long piece of walnut that had the open pores , not unlike my stock, and practiced on it first and worked out the bugs on it before I tried it out on the stock.

Hope this helps.

The sapwood of walnut is creamy white, while the heartwood is light brown to dark chocolate brown, occasionally with a purplish cast and darker streaks. The wood develops a rich patina that grows more lustrous with age. The wood is generally straight-grained, but sometimes with wavy or curly grain that produces an attractive and decorative figure. With that being said I'd like to suggest "sapping" the stock with acetone before rubbing the tru-oil on. Acetone opens up the pores and would allow the oil to penetrate better into your stock. I work at a cabinet factory as a stain sprayer/finisher and thought I'd throw my 2 cents in. Hope it helps you out!

Always great to receive advice from the experts, thanks. I never knew about the acetone trick.
