Maple Bowl Finishing *PIC*

TomW in SouthJersey
>Here are a couple pictures of the first bowl I've turned from the $238 chuck of wood I bought. This is from the smaller cut off piece. It looks like the larger piece has even more figure to it.
(sorry for poor quality photo)
I've turned this and sanded to 600. I'm undecided on what finish would bring out the colors best for this.
I have on hand some Tung oil, Minwax paste wax, a couple HUT sticks and some Formbys Lemon oil finish.
Are any of these good choices? If I need to buy something please suggest what and where it can be purchased.

Also, as you can see I haven't removed the glue block yet so if you see any design flaws please suggest away. I'm open to ideas.
Tom
