Ash makes nice handles, spindles, etc. I prefer to turn it dry, but that’s a matter of personal choice,

I would seal the ends … don’t seal the whole piece. Sealing the ends will slow down drying and reduce checking/cracking.

Paraffin is fine … I use melted candle wax (I buy candles at a local resale store).
