What finish would you use?

I turned this earlier this week. It's maple from a tree downed during Dorian. Its green but I turned it with a wall thickness way less than 1/4" so it should be reasonable stable. I wiped on an amber shellac coat but it looked terrible so I sanded it off as it did nothing to pop the any figure. It does have some curl. Your thoughts for a finish?

Very nice piece. depends on what you want to use it for. To keep the color as light as possible I have found 3408 (delayed, odorless Ca ) to be the best. Mike Mahoney's oil or Steve Cooks finish are very good also., Deft lacquer finishes semi gloss, works well, Hope this helps Barb
