I have finished ebony three ways. First, since I was so impressed how it shone when wet sanded I left it unfinished as cr1 said. I have also just rubbed in mineral oil. That deepens the black color. In the third case I sprayed several lacquer coats and wet sanded it. Each has its own unique appearance and IMO it kind of depends what you like the looks of. If you look at my projects you will see two that have ebony. The jewelry box was left unfinished and the mirror frame was lacquered. A pool que rack (not shown) was oiled.
