I found some beautiful blue pine that I want to use for some wainscoting and I would like to protect the wood without covering up the colors and grain of the wood. What can I use to accomplish this? Any tips would be appreciated. Also I’m doing a 1/2 round of sequoia live edge and I would like to bring out the colors and grain of that wood too. This piece will be covered with clear epoxy in the end. Thanks in advance.
