Finishing The Wood

One thing in particular I am pleased about with my project is the wood choice, the piece I got in particular seems to have interesting grain patterns which i selected the best of for my final model having used all of the 3 meter long piece I bought from Brodies saw mill. The wood itself untreated was lovely and light but for the final I felt it needed a nice shine and seal. I experimented with different colours and opacities of wax and varnish but finally settled on a wood oil which brings out a nice colour from the wood without making it too yellow/orange or dulling down the grains.
