If you want to keep the maple untinted lacquer is a good choice as well as water based polyacrylic or urethane.

Oil based finishes and shellacs tend to impart an amber color.

The tool of choice here a hand plane. Sanding tends to selectively remove more face grain than end grain.

But, I see the face grain is proud, so sanding can work.

The dust can be removed with compressed air.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
