Never worked with redwood, doing a set of redwood burl peppermills and don’t want to blow it on wrong finish. Search in this forum didn’t really give me a solid feel for recommendations other than stay away from oil. Especially if any endgrain that wants to really suck in the finish and darken it. @Mike1950 I’ve got some Generals waterbased woodturners finish, is that similar to what you’ve used? Obviously want that shimmer in the grain to pop. Should I maybe hit the top (endgrain) with some wax free shellac sanding sealer, regardless of finish used?? Thanks in advance folks!
