I was lucky enough to find an osage tree large enough for this project,(biggest one i ever saw), after drying for a couple years i thought it ready and dove in. For some reason my moisture meter would not register at all on this wood. Oak and cherry right beside it read just fine??? Anyway it seems to be dry enough. this is my first osage project and it is a different kind of wood for sure. I would like some advice on finishing the chair. i was thinking maybe a satin poly but i want the wood to darken over time, ( it almost glows when fresh). My grand daughter sure likes it.
