Tekton, any oil finish will darken the wood somewhat which is fine if that is what you want. You could also use a waterborne polyurethane which would mostly preserve the current color. The urethane also gives you options relative to the desired sheen-satin, semi-gloss, gloss. Another option would be to use rattle can spray lacquer. This offers the same benefits as the WB polyurethane. Try the options on scrap and see which you prefer. HTH
