I like minwax natural for the stain/sealer followed by antique oil and then wax all from minwax. If the wood is porous this may not be the best way to go....... I like to put on two coats of everything.boxer said:I'm making jewelry boxes, using exotic hardwoods. I've been finishing them with lacquer, but want to try my luck with handrubbed oils & waxes. All of the Danish oils I've found have stain in them and I don't want to take away from the natural beauty of these exotic woods. Any suggestions?
