I made a headboard from Philippine Mahogany stock, and i've done a pretty good job so far considering that this is my first time dabbling in carpentry.
I did the pre-staining conditioning and then stained it using an oil-based stain (minwax).
I was hoping someone could help me with the finish. It's obviously not going to get heavy use but I do want a finish that is durable so the piece lasts a long time, but also looks good. Something good, durable and easy to use. (not to be too demanding haha)
I'm afraid of using polyurethane because since i don't have a "workshop" it gets a little dusty and i don't want to ruin all the work i've done so far.
I've been doing some reading and found some comments saying that i shouldn't use oil finishings since i used the oil-based stain.
Anyway, any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
