Finish for Boxwood???

Danny Wells
>What kind of finish would be best for boxwood? I'm making one of my trumpet yelper turkey calls from a piece of beautiful boxwood for one of my customers. I'm putting in some really small beads and other detail, and I don't want the sharp valleys or creases between the beads to get filled with finish. The call would probably be used in the field and exposed to the weather. I would also like to preserve the color as close as possible.

I usually use Mylands Cellulose Sealer and then either a gel polyurethane or Hut's polish. The sealer gets down in those creases and is hard to get out.

I know that's a tall order. Any suggestions would be helpful.
