I’m almost finished building two matching monster truck Jeeps for my nephews (walnut, curly maple, bird’s eye maple, and a little purple heart) and I was hoping for some input as to what finish to use, for protection as well as appearance. They’re 11 and 9. The tires already have two coats of Kunos dark walnut finish applied, and I’m very pleased with the colour and durability. For the rest of the trucks I’m thinking either just a couple coats of polyurethane, or a couple coats of linseed oil and a coat or two of paste finishing wax, or a Danish oil mixture (linseed oil, polyurethane, mineral oil), or a couple coats of Kunos clear finish.
I think all of these options would bring out the figure in the maple.
