Please do! Just looking for a nice natural, low sheen finish that will bring out the beauty of the curly makore and strengthen the veneer. Don't mind multiple steps and time investment - not in a hurry at all. I don't have spray capabilities, so wipe/brush will need to do.
For hand applied finishes, I like these equally. Availability may be determining factor.http://www.sutherlandwelles.com/http://www.waterlox.com/
Both are Tung oil based and handle similarly, easy to control, multi coats can give finish build-up desired and most of all, they look good. I'm not a fan of polyurethane on furniture...too plastic looking. It's primary strength is durability and cost, but it's not like a speaker sees much in the way of wear and tear. It has it's place, but I wouldn't say this is it. There are certainly those who disagree.
Some examples, but photos don't tell the whole story
Finished in Waterlox
This is sprayed poly(catalyzed)
This is Sutherland Welles, at least 15 yrs old, many coats.
The down side to either of the finishes I mention is odor, they will smell a little for, say, a month after finishing. It's the nature of oil based varnishes.
