    My new favorite finish for walnut :)

    I just completed a quick video review and commentary on my new favorite finish for walnut and perhaps all other wood.

    Let me know what you think, even if you disagree. THANKS

    Yep. My last few pieces for myself as well as others have used an oil / varnish blend that I mix up. I like to avoid colorants whenever possible and would have to say that blended finishes are my favorite method of finishing. For surfaces that will be subject to repeated contact I simply alter the mixture toward a higher varnish content for the top coats. I find penetrating finishes leave that "wants to be touched" finish you mention.
