Ive had pretty good luck with the Minwax wipe on poly, i tend to just ball up a rag dip it into the poly and wipe away. All though, learning from past mistake, if you put a coat of brush on full strength poly on first its a bit easier to build up a finish with the wipe on afterwards. The wipe on is about 50% diluted so it goes on very thin, and if you’re imaptient like me, 8 coats just takes too damn long to build it up.

It should bring out the grain for you but as always try some on a test piece first. If you find out you dont like the way it looks you can try BLO (boiled linseed oil) or tung oil, or a homemade concotion mixing parts.
