It partly depends on the look you want. Personally, I like walnut with an oil type finish (like the BLO recommended by rwe). Another option is Sam Maloof’s oil/poly finish which is easy to apply by wiping and a bit more durable. I think Rockler sells it. An oil finish is also true to how Nakashima’s furniture was (and still is) finished.
