I just started experimenting with pyrography and have fallen in love. I have a question about finishes. I know everyone has different preferences but I want to know what is best for a beginner. I just finished a project that I will be giving as a birthday present. It is a picture frame and I'm wanting to put some sort of stain or seal on it because the wood looks so dry and plain. I've looked in to butcher block conditioner and am wondering if that will work. I don't want something super shiny I just don't want to have such plain looking dry wood.
I hope my questions make sense. Thank you!

I saw noone has answered you and most probably won't agree with me but I live in the south where moisture is a problem and I also made wood furniture and I like Matt spray (no gloss) I also like pure tung oil and you can put the shine like you want or none. I have a table top now used for my wheelchair ramp that I put 10 coats of tung oil on and it still doesn't show any signs of wear. Tung oil comes in glossy & flat but I liked the gloss & only put it on till I got desired coat. I burn almost anything I want including leather, but have never figured out how to burn a picture on material(LOL). Just keep trying you will find what you like.
