I would say it looks pretty good as it is. Maybe a clear coat to protect the wood is in store but that will not alter its appearance.

I would avoid any lo oil/hi poly, unless you want it glossy.

To get some depth and glow in that grain, try this:

Wipe it down with denatured alcohol to pull out the dirt and clear out the surface oil, then use some Maloof oil/wax:
http://www.amazon.com/Rockler-Sam-Maloof-Finish-Quart/dp/B001DSY6UI

It has no poly, so finishes easy, plus you can re-apply from time to time like BLO and maintain a nice satin finish, like the Finns used.

The Maloof Oil/poly will finish to a shine, but the stored oil/poly begins to gel if not sealed, and their can is not good for resealing.

It is available over the counter only at Rockler Woodworking stores.

I got a smokin' deal!! :D

Here is a pic of the stock.

It's missing the crossbolt, and a rail. It also has a fairly in-depth repair that needs to be made on the wrist.

I'm going to need to soak the stock, and loosen/remove the existing devcon, and then address each split in turn.

I'm pretty confident that I can do it, and I'll probably end up painting it... so I don't care about the cosmetic stuff. 8-)
