What dreamdoctor wrote is correct. However, if you live in a very humid area or on the coast, you can seal the wood against moisture and acids over time.

I was just using some water based urethane last night to seal something - I use it when I don't want the wood color to change - most oil based urethane has a yellowing pigment in it.
