In my new house, all the cabinetry is natural bare oak. The house is about 8 years old. Chances are the cabinetry is original and doesn't appear to be finished with anything.
I'm considering using tung oil to help liven it up a bit and protect it. However, I've never used tung oil and honestly, rarely, if ever, do projects such as this.
Is using tung oil on oak cabinets a good option?
Are there better alternatives than tung oil? Such as a clear polyurethane?
I don't really want to paint or stain the cabinets because color will change. I merely want to protect the cabinetry at this point.
