Re: Want a natural finish for oak mantel
My personal prferance would be oil based "Old Masters" polyurathane. It has about the best self leveling properties of and finish I have ever used and an extremely hard surface. You would want to use gloss or semi-gloss. bHere's a project I'm currently working on, it's stained with Minwax antique oak stain and one coat of Old Masters poly so far.
