Dyes and Maple - 10 replies

I am to the finishing stage for a bed I build for my son and my wife and I are hoping to get a medium to slightly dark redish brown color to the wood. I do not like the stains I have tested as they hide too much of the figure and grain so I have all but decided on using a dye. Now the dye I have tested (though not the color I plan to use just ...
