Hi all, I'm just starting my first project, a toy chest for my daughter. I'm making it out of oak cladding with an ash frame. I want a hard wearing, gloss finish that brings out the grain. Please can someone offer some advise as to what I should be looking for etc or recommend a particular product?

No suggestions? I've spoken with a few different people and am leaning towards a polyurathane varnish. Any particular advise or thoughts on this before I go out and buy it?

Polyeurethane sounds sensible, I recommend applying with disposable foam brushes.
