But you do need to apply finish. Wetting with anything will show colour but not proper depth or sheen which are important. I always take a longish finish sanded strip, separate into areas with masking tape and apply every finish at my disposal. When dry it’s easy to see which one is right and how the different woods look next to each other. Rather than being disappointed, it is worth the trouble.
