I’m looking for what would be a good finish for a Ambrosia maple picture frame. Has any one finished any ambrosia maple? Never worked with this wood before. Thanks for any help.

I turned a bowl out of ambrosia maple and what I used was a standard brush on sanding sealer (about 3 coats where I sanded in between each coat. The tin has the recommended directions) followed by several coats of lacquer. I admit that there may be another way but the results I got turned out great!
