hi I’ve just joined and saw some notes on Huon Pine - whilst recently there in Huon Country I purchased some timber and shippeD it home. I’m in the process of making a chess board for my son with Huon Pine and Blackwood from same area - Gordon - Franklin river ( recommend it) question is can I use an oil / wax based finish on both Timbers? Given that the Blackwood is harder than the Huon pine?

Welcome to the forum, Amateur carpenter. Like you, I am also an amateur.
I have made a pair of chessboards and other 3D board projects using pine and hardwoods. I have had no problems with the mineral oil application. Just some additional coatings of mineral oil to get an even shine.
First time to hear about Huon pine.
