Proper finish on distressed farm table?
I have just refinished a very distress farm table and its time for me put on a top finishing coat. I have done research and I'm still confused as what is best to use. The table is stained very dark, black walnut with tons of holes, pockets and planks & general distressing. I want the finishing coat to keep a natural look as if the table is still raw wood and it needs to be able to get into the nooks and crannies. Can anyone suggest the easiest and best top coat that doesn't leave a glassy, thick appearance - Poly? Tung oil? varnish? I would love it to be dummy proof! :-)
