Seeking recommendations on the best finish for walnut to provide the
smoothest surface. I am going to be working with small pieces - 1" X 10" X
16" or similar. I want to maintain the color as much as possible and do not
want to darken the wood. Is a light stain worthwhile? This is very good,
Thanks for any help.
Lacquer. Any topcoat will make the wood darker than it is raw but
lacquer darkens it the least and is the easiest to sand between the
multiple coats you'll need to achieve baby butt smooth. Preview
darkening with a bit of water. Or spit.
