Default Re: Show your wood

I think oil (danish or tung, not lemon oil, motoer oil etc.) is not only OK, but good for the wood. I feel the inside needs some treatment, however with snarees especially, a hard coated like clear urethane, poly etc. will not do the acoustics any favours IMO, a more natural rougher finish will give you more control and bottom end. Danish oil penetrates and protects the wood without making it hard and reflective. I also use bees wax on occasion over the oil.
