Or just let it all age gray...?
Bare, scrubbed wood looks O/K for little work.
Oil looks better for more work.
Varnish looks the best for the most work.
Cetol falls in between oil & varnish for both looks and work.
All IMHO of course.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
