The other day I posted a picture of this box without a finishing sealer on it because I could not decide what type of finish I should use that would maintain the brownish color of the wenge. I took several scraps of sanded wenge and applied a boled linseed oil finish, a water based poly finish, a shellac finish and my standard lacquer finish. They all sorta looked the same after 5 coats. I guess there is not a good way I have found for the wenge finish. I should have used walnut to maintain the chocolate look I wanted….but the wenge does have a nice and unique grain.
