Oil and wax is a very traditional finish that does look good. However it is not as durable as a film-forming finish such as lacquer or polyurethane. For this project I would wax it (see my review of Howard’s Walnut Wax).

I use oil based stain and sprayed lacquer on all of my projects. With gravity feed HVLP spray guns available from woodcraft for $30, it is easy for anyone to start spraying.

Good luck!
