Peppermill question (repost)

>I think this one got buried in all the posts yesterday. And I really need any ideas, so I'm posting this again.

I finished a peppermill this past weekend with Walnut Oil. It was sanded through 1500, coated twice, dried, sand at 1000 and 1500 again, recoated and is now dry (as far as I can tell). The wood is "Morado".

Can I apply a carnuaba wax finish over this to give it a bit more shine? Or should I just let its use give it the lustre it needs? Or is there another polish I can apply over oil to give a bit more shine to it?
