My wood choice would be hard and smooth, like Sycamore, Beech or Maple, maybe mix in some Cherry or Walnut for contrast. I would stay away from Ash or Oak because of splinters. For low cost, Poplar might work.

I much prefer to break the edges with my low angle block plane.

For color I’d use some analine dye.

And for finish I would use water based poly, applied with a paint pad.
