Take the bark off and sand the edges. I stop sanding at 150, but that is me. I spray a clear finish on my slabs , except for walnut. I use a walnut dye first. It adds very little color, but warms it up a bit. If you want the sap on the piece , skip the dye. Just spray 3 coats of a clear finish. If you want a water base finish, add a coat of clear seal a cell first and let dry. Then spray your water base over that. It will warm up the wood a bit. As Jim says above, depending what you want to do with it, that will tell you what type of top coat you want. bob
