I'm a novice wood worker. I have done some coffee tables and end tables. I need a mantel for my house and I happen to have an old chestnut beam that I would like to use. I want to bring out the grain in the wood, have a smooth appearance and also have a good sheen to the mantel as it will be a center piece in my living room. This is a picture of one that I found online with the look I want to achieve. Is this piece finished with a wax? Thanks in advance.
