Use a Dark Walnut stain, allow to dry, then complete the project with an appropriate sealer. Don’t use a 2 in 1 stain/varnish combo. The staining step-by-step is quite complete and should answer any questions.
Then second method is to use a dark paste wax, like Bree Wax, found at most good paint supply stores. You simply apply with a rag, let set, then buff to a polish. This method typically requires 3 coats or more and creates a beautiful hand rubbed effect. Experiment on a separate piece of wood if possible to examine the different results and get a feel for the application method. Wax can always be removed with mineral spirits or furniture strippers.
