What is the best sealer to use on a piece of paper glued to a piece of wood. I don't want to ruin the pictures I am putting on the wood.

You could use decoupage or ModPodge glue. It comes in a variety of finishes like antique and matte. Or you could make your own glue using three parts of Elmer's white glue to one part of water. Some of the decoupage glues are sealers as well, but after gluing the paper you could also seal the project with a clear or matte acrylic spray.

From Instructibles:

Use a water based polyurethane. Sand lightly between coats with a 250 or higher grit sandpaper

I have seen where some folks like the floor wax, Has anyone ever used that as a finish?

You can use shellac, varnish, Krylon clear sealer, or two-part resin such as they have at Hobby Lobby or Michael's.
