    That's beautiful. Did you stripe it yourself or get lucky with the wood?

    Shamefully ugly. Send it to me and I'll hide it so that you never have to look at it's hideous figure and sheen again...:D

    It looks like the finish is a little rough. If you want to smooth it out a little and really make those stripes look amazing you should take some 0000 steel wool and buff the crap out of it. It will make it look a little bit dull but that is okay. Once you have smoothed all the roughness out of it, you can polish it with any manner of polishing methods. I actually prefer to just use some hand rubbed BLO. Then, if you really want it to be slick and flashy some turtle wax will really make it stand out.
