Tutorials and resources for painting real wood?

I am new to certain parts of modeling and lately have been stumped on painting real natural wood. I currently have roof framing that I build out of balsa and primed black as part of the process for my diorama building. Now, however, I am stumped on how to actually paint it and am having issues finding resources to help me.

If anybody has links or their own tips and techniques I would really appreciate it!

Thank you.
