Actualy the only finishes that are natural so to speak are not going to save this lovely grain IMHO. I think no one wants to tell you cause they know what you want may not exist but lets say you use water based Thompson water seal like for a deck did you know thousands of people get redness from it when it has prolonged contact with the skin . My answer was based on 43 years of woodworking experience and I don’t give advise that I wont take as solid spar varnish is a varnish it is used on boats so you can see the lovely grain and it wont need re-sanding every 2 years and a re application. It is not perfect but, i think that your trying to preserve a piece of wood you expect to fail .and this is the best way to do that IMHO
