You can use a variety of finishing oils and waxes, or combinations of them, to shine up and preserve the surface of a nicely planed or sanded wooden workpiece while maintaining its character.

In contrast, paints and lacquers or stains will often add a non-natural touch but may last longer.

Finishing Oils

A good finishing oil should be neutral, not acidic. Examples include coconut oil and linseed oil, but not olive oil. Mineral oil can also be used but make sure to use a "food grade" or "food safe" variant if it's meant for a cutting board or other food related wooden projects.
