I am carving a walking stick, as a gift for my father in law, from a branch of a cherry tree. What is the best treatment, once I have it sanded smooth, to bring out the colour of the wood?

Any advice would be greatly received(y)

Boiled linseed oil, you can buy it ready prepared from B&Q, Screwfix etc. A couple of coats will do it, And here's how to get a really good finish...
