Hello, I'm a student from Portugal. I'm working on a wood piece in white beech and I would like to finish this piece with an oil that mantain the original color of the wood. That means that I want the wood to be or, in the original color ( natural ) or if its possible to whitening the wood ( not with a paint but with an oil ).

I'll share some images with the finish that I'm persuing.

thanks in advance,
Best regards from Portugal :)

i'm no oil expert but a couple of the popular oils for wood - say boiled linseed or Danish oil both have drying agents I think, where i'd guess white oil doesn't so that's a consideration to make, it would eventually dry i'd have thought, but it could rettain a greasiness and attract dirt more than the processed oils maybe.
