Thanks guys the finish is just spray laquer and shoe polish, just get some Abro clear laquer and depending on the wood you use put one or more coats this wood requires only one or at the most two coats then apply some KIWI shoe polish(neutral) and go for it ,lol

Beautifully executed! What type of wood is this? It looks like Jatoba.

Fantastic works of art! Great job. Love the wood and the designs are complimentary to the grain patterns.

Keep it up.
