You asked for a straight answer. Assemble the box. Apply a coat of processed Walnut oil. Let it cure/dry for several days. Then apply several coats by hand of either wipe on poly or clear shellac. Sand lightly between coats. After the top coat has dried for a week or so apply a carnauba paste wax with a white 3M pad and buff with a soft cloth. You can hardly go wrong doing this.
