Default quick stock refinish

I just did a quick refinish/repair on a on a fox Sterlingworth shotgun.
The original finish was very bad as can be seen in the photos.

I used 190 proof Everclear alcohol, rags, a tooth brush and a dental pick to do the job.
The Everclear is 95% alcohol and melted away the old finish.
I used the tooth brush and the dental pick to clean out the checkering
I was amazed at how well it worked.

I am going to leave the stock the way it is, it looks like it match's the
rest of the gun.

What did you use to coat it or are you leaving it bare? Personally I like Tung Oil.

The old finish was a shellac, and the alcohol thinned it and it seems to have sealed the wood very well.
I was thinking of giving it a couple coats of paste wax and seeing how it holds up.
it seems to blend in with the rest of the gun.
