I recently received a restored wood rail game in a buy. I don't have plans on keeping it and the wood wood is the only part needs to be refinished before reassembly. The cabinet trim and 2/3rds of the legs are sanded and ready, I still need to sand down the playfeild surround.
What is the best, highest regarded finish for this wood. I don't want to reduce the value of the game with everything else in perfect shape. I have used Tung oil on a skill roll and puck bowling games, gives a nice Amber color and not picky with recoat times. I have heard about using polyurethane. I saw Clay also use a yellow orange stain before poly. This game looks new.
what's the recommended best option for a restored wood rail game.
