The only finish I now use is varnish applied as you would an oil. Although this is mentioned in american magazines it does not seem common here. The varnish (I like to use satin or matt) is diluted and poured on like an oil,then wiped off with a piece of old cotton. Once dry it is rubbed down with wire wool and tack clothed before applying another coat in the same way. About three coats should be enough.
The result is a beautiful finish without any runs or dust marks. I have not had any trouble with yellowing. Try it on a test piece.
