I bought some wood from a friend
In an old barn didnt know what it was until i started planing it
As a redult it is black walnut .so i made a bench for my entrance for my wife
But have not finished it as of yet because i am not sure what to use
I am thinking tung oil
Any suggestions

Love walnut….looks like you have some beautiful wood there and you did a great job. I vote for just some Waterlox,Original Sealer Finish and wipe it on with a lambs wool applicator.

Here’s a link to a video that got me hooked on Waterlox. The end of the second video shows a table finished with Waterlox.

That looks GREAT!
I really like the proportions.
How high is the seat?

Nice! Care to show the inside to? What kind of joinery did you use?

great build on the bench , a oil finish would make it pop , try some on a piece of scrap first .
