So I decided to use oil since i liked the warm color. I tried 2 oils and you can see the comparison. (Im still studiing so i cannot afford to by everything and trie it). BVut thank you so much for all your input and ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚
I did find soime things interesting tho. (My results arnt really scintific, since thickness of shavings and so on weary)
I used a normal oil bought in a german store called Hornbach wood oil, wich claimes to be colorless however “colorrefreshing” and on the other oine i used 100% linseedoil (brand Nordicare).
The linseedoil (on the right) was mostly brighter however for some woods (cherry and walnut) it was darker.
I think the Hornbach oil has some color on its own, so all the wood kontrasts ended up a little closer together, whilst the linseedoil didnt really channge the coler as much, why i think darker woods stayed darker, whilst brighter Woods stayed brighter.
As a remark, it isnt boild linseed oil, since i wasnt sure if thet would be to flammeble on the shavings.

So that are my results. After some time i realiced, that i liked both ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you like my findings and maby you have some comments ๐Ÿ™‚
