Keep it simple. Probably the simplest finish you can apply is some sort of oil/varnish blend eg. Minwax “Tung Oil” or a “natural” Danish oil eg. Watco or Deft, all of which are available at any big box hardware store. The Minwax “Tung Oil” is my go-to finish for most of my woodworking (look at my projects if you want examples of how it looks). Super easy; wipe on, let sit for 5 minute and use a dry rag to wipe off the excess. Let dry 24h b/t coats (if it still feels tacky it isn’t dry yet). Sand lightly with 220 b/t coats and do 3-4 total coats. Gives you a nice warm look and sheen.

Of course test a bit first to see if you like it!
