BLO will not give you a natural color to Maple. it will give you a very definite light brown color. Make sure that you try a sample on some scrap before continuing on your project.

You might try some Deft which is a water clear laquar. I’ve sprayed laquar and I have some deft in a can which is suppose to be a brushing laquar. I think Andy uses Deft in some of his small boxes and they have figured wood and also light color. That seems to be the kind of output you might be asking for.

Send Andy a PM and ask him.
