Michael, this is a pretty nice looking frame that you have built. I have never had the opportunity to work with chestnut but it looks to be an interesting wood. How did you finish this frame?

Nice classic frame. The splines add a great touch.

Sorry for not posting what I finished with. One coat of high gloss tung oil then I put 4 coats of minwax oil based polyurethane, while sanding with a fine foam sanding block between coats. I almost always use this coating. Chestnut is very easy to machine providing it doesnt contain wind shook or previously stressed wood.
