Best way to finish end grain birch
My end grain birch floor has just been installed in my sunny, south-facing study.
We want to finish it more or less naturally. However, the way it looks now is too bland. We want to bring out the natural grain of the wood by increasing contrast. We would not mind warming it a little bit.
What is the very best way to finish it to bring out, maybe enhance, the natural grain and color of the wood?
Not surprisingly, the processing the camera does automatically makes the pictures seem closer to the look we want than the floor itself is in its current unfinished state.
Thanks in advance for your help.
ps. I originally posted this in the flooring forum, but got no response.
