Newbie turner question - finish for rolling pin?

Glenn Madsen near San Francisco
>I'm basically a flat wood worker, who occasionally picks up the lathe tools and makes something. Today, it was a simple french style rolling pin. I had some scrap anigre, and turned a 16" pin, about 2.5" in diameter.

It's sanded to 400, burnished with the shavings and looks pretty nice.

So: Oil? Shellac? Wax? Varnish? Leave it alone?

Still mounted on the lathe, but coming off later today. This is a gift, among others, for a newly married niece.
