Using a wipe-on mixture of spar varnish and Danish oil. Still looks very dull as the bare wood
just sucks it up. This will be rubbed with a 220 grit pad between coats. By the 4th application
or so things should start to build nicely and display a bit of that 3D look. And as the wood stops
sucking up finish it will dry a little faster too... giving me time to get more than one coat per
night. I'll let this first one settle in overnight. It's already late and a bit muggy tonite anyway.
There's not as much color difference between the cherry and oak as I expected there might be.
