For all the acacia I’ve played with, the most I’d do is add oil and/or poly. The results have been so pleasing I wish I had more.

My brother gave me his tree and I fell in love with it from the first sanding. Enough so I started looking into getting more. I was surprised to learn research takes you to olive wood.

You might turn it over and flood the back with BLO, then a coat of poly to see what you think. If it isn’t enough, then you can turn to your test pieces.
