That’s some awesome wood species, is this just a wipe on poly? The finish looks good and it does not take away from the wood. Excellent.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

The finish is with a mixture of Tung oil and poly diluted by mineral oil.
I am not good at finishing at all. As a matter of fact, I repeated apply / steel wool polish
probably more than 15 times with different concentration.
Salute to the beauty of this wood piece, I was very patient..

Have your say...
