I’m getting ready to start my first rocking chair (Hal Taylor design). After seeing the “Canadian’s” Lacewood and Walnut design I decided to do something similar with Leopardwood. I’ve used Lacewood in the past on a box but it finished somewhat dull. It was a long time ago and I think I used danish oil on it.

I’ve scoured the internet and found a lot of different opinions on finishing Leopard wood. Does anyone have thoughts on how to make it “pop”? What have you tried that doesnt work?

It will be interesting to see what responses you get on this.
