    Isn't their blonde furniture simply clear-coated (or oiled)?

    I had a IWD beechwood stock set (it is on his customer pics) and I just used Watco exterior oil. I don't know if it was the exact same as a Arsenal blonde but it was pretty blonde for me. I have never seen one in person to compare.

    I have used Formbys tung oil finish also, pretty much the same result, just shinny-er.

    Bulgarian wood was finished in an Amber type Shellac. If you want the really pale white export look then maybe just go clear. For the Amber yellow/light brown the Amber shellac in a few coats. Google Shellac thinning and application procedures. It is easy.
