interesting, thanks guys… I should mention that i m not concerned at all about getting paint on it. Art equipment should get messy. I m just wanting to preserve the wood I guess from swelling and fading etc

Ah yes but the tool itself can be art too! ;-) You could perhaps paint something on the top and then use a spray polyurethane as a topcoat to protect it at least a little. You could even “distress” it by painting seemingly random but interesting patterns to give a used look and then topcoat that. Just some random thoughts.
