I’ve been working on this toy box/blanket chest for my daughter. Made from some cool french walnut that has some curly figure and worm holes/tracks. I really want to highlight the curly figure, obviously.
I’m just looking for some advice on how to finish this piece. It will reside in my living room and will probably be used as a bench at times and with a small child, protection from spills, crayons, etc will be an issue.
I don’t have the ability to spray. I tried a few test boards using BLO, shellac, poly. So far, it looks like the BLO brought out the most figure and color. I would of course top this with probably shellac and then some poly.
I want to hear what you would do
