OK First off I didn’t make this Walnut mantle; I bought it. (I know, I am so ashamed) And now I am waiting to get it mounted. (More shame) But the real question is how to finish it. Or if I should finish it at all.
Please see the pictures. they don’t do the piece justice but it might help to take a look. I am thinking it might look better with a finish. But on the other hand the top and bottom are not going to be very visible. The only protection I see it needing is from a random water spill from a vase knocked over by our half deranged cat.
Lacquer or something else?
Nothing at all?
And do you think should I put a finish on the live edge or let it be?
All opinions welcome.
Thanks in advance.
