Looking for a finish recommendation for a pine bookcase - 3 replies

I have a simple pine bookcase from Sweden that has a very natural finish – just a light, clear, slightly glossy topcoat of some kind. It is a bit too light and bright and yellow for the room it is in. And it has been there for 4 years, so it isn’t going to change naturally. I’d like to knock the color back a bit – make it...

I’ve got ...

I’ve been hired to do some illustrations for a book on interior decorating. One of the concepts is “wood comes in many different colors – it isn’t just brown”. Can anyone help me identify the 16 species shown in this photo? Doesn’t have to be perfect, just reasonably correct.

Or does that turn into one of those dangerous climb cutting operations?
