Ive handcrafted a pair of mahogany sunglasses and am trying to find the best finish to use on them. Ive been to all the woodshops around Dallas and gotten a lot of different advice but yet still dont know what the best finish would be.
I recently saw a handcrafted wooden pen that had been finished on a lathe with CA glue and boiled linseed oil. It looked amazing. This is the finish I am trying to achieve. I want the wood to look like it has a lot of depth, and is wet. Something similar to this:
Does any one have any suggestions on what to use? Ideally, the finish is non-toxic, and durable.
Thanks for your help!
