For the finish, to try something new, I decided to get some amber shellac. Shellac is very much so a different finish than varnish or polyurethane. It's "natural" in that it is made from the resin secreted by the lac bug, and amber shellac is mixed with a reddish dye, which tends to "warm up" darker woods. All in all, I think the frames turned out very well.
