I thought I posted this question yesterday, but now I don’t see it. So, please excuse me if you have duplicates.
I’m making a dovetail saw handle with osage orange. I’ve never worked with it before and I’m struck by its beauty. What finish should I use to preserve the wood’s coloration and protect it in semi-frequent handling? Should I expect the appearance to change over time? I understand some manufacturers use oil (BLO, I assume) and wax. Would that be good? Thanks for your advice.
