I am about done with a Leopardwood box. Some of the other woods used are: Wenge, Canarywood, Zebrawood, & Bloodwood. I am going to finish with a danish oil, and was wondering if I could/should put a lacquer finish on top. Maybe BLO to pop the grain and then lacquer? I really want the leopardwood to jump out at me. All thoughts welcome.
Thanks, Kevin

I always heard that BLO really makes the grain "pop", but offers no real protection. I think I am going with the danish oil finish. I really like the natural look of it, plus I've gotten kinda lazy. Thanks Jerry

I hate to hi-jack my own thread, but I was finishing another box (curly maple) with danish oil when I discovered a spot of chip-out. Sanding is not an option. Is it still feasable to fill in this spot, or do I just put it on the discount table. Man, that table is filling up alot faster than the good table. :p
