When all the woodwork is done sand the neck smooth and it is time to protect the guitar with some lacquer.  You can leave the box unfinished if you wish but the neck needs some lacquer to protect it from picked up dirt and grease off your hands and to help with sliding up and down the neck.

I recommend a water based lacquer called KTM-9.  It is easy to apply with a brush, dries in about an hour, and it can be used on the box if you wish.
