Ash--especially crotch for pens. Only pic I could find quickly is below, second from right. This blank had a touch of BLO and finished with WTF. Last one I did I used mineral oil and then CA, was noticeably lighter in color, but the mineral oil doesn't bring out the pattern as well as BLO (at least in my eye).
