The store that I was at today dealt with specialty woods. So it begs the
question in mind, what finish to do you put on rare woods generally
speaking? For example they had lots and lots of zebrawood, and two huge
slabs of Bubinga - rough cut with bark on them, along with some Bolivian
Rosewood and Mango. I can't see anyone staining wood like that, so is it
generally a simple varnish or wax as the finish?
Bubinga is popular for recorder makers, and you'd just oil it

Now she wants a mahogany couch to match the table; I should have written
down what I did.
Normally you treat tropical woods are lightly as possible. Some oil if they
don't need protection; some varnish if they do.
But that's true for most woods; only wood I routinely stain is red oak.
