I’ve been practicing the Yakisugi wood preservation technique where the surface of wood is charred, making it waterproof through carbonisation. In addition, it also renders the wood fire retardant and resistant to insects/rot. It also satisfy my wish for sometimes using a stain on certain soft woods but not really being a fan of using chemicals.
These business card/pen holders are made of scorched cedar and finished in organic linseed oil and beeswax.

Seems to be a hot topic these days, yet an ancient art. Always great to gain more understanding of the many aspects of playing with wood. :-)

I love it when old techniques are rediscovered, particularly when they are super useful :)
