Hello Mark, My preference for both kinds of wood is Tung Oil. While it slightly darkens both kinds of wood, it’s a hard drying oil that nourishes the wood while sealing it from moisture. You could varnish or polyurethane it, but frankly, encasing such beautiful timber in plastic grates a little with me. This product is popular and pure:  https://geni.us/74m8
