I won this wood on ebay...I plan on making an antique wash stand with it. It has some nice ambrosia red and pink markings on it. Can I use tung oil or some other hand rubbrd finish and then coat it with poly?
I am donating the piece to be chanced off for Cancer research
I expect it would end up in a bathroom and want to protect it from moisture, hence the poly top coat. I don't want to darken it too much and take away from the uniqueness of the wood.
