Clock in black walnut

I’ve been chipping away at this an hour or two at a time. I’m almost finished with this Shaker Wall Clock (a la Norm) in Peruvian Walnut. I’m going to design the face myself (and that’s just about the last thing I have to do!)

Planned to use hidden hinges and magnets to close the doors.

How do you all think I should finish this? Danish oil?

Where did you get Peruvian walnut? I did a mission trip to Peru and built a church so anything with the wrd Peru in it catches my attention. I brought back a board from the construction site and a wood turning friend made pens for each team member. Not sure what wood it was.

Really great dealer. Very organized and super nice. No sheet goods though!
