Everyone has their personal preferences, and it usually comes down to Nitro, tung oil or shellac. French polish is probably the good choice; especially if you don t have spray equipment. The initial investment is very low and it s relatively easy to rework mistakes. There are many videos and instructional aides on French polishing available online nowadays.

Thanks for the reply. I just read quite a bit about the subject and teak oil was also mentioned. I just jointed the material and it really is a beautiful piece of wood. Still trying to decide if I want to use my bandsaw or tablesaw to cut it up. Just bought a tri master blade so I will probably go that way.
