FWIW, the ebony oil based stain does not have any brown in it. I have a can and believe it’s made with a black dye of some sort. It’s BLACK! and also shows the grain. If you get the stain, and not the poly shades, you can put a couple of coats before putting any topcoat on it to get it darker. I also don’t think you’ll need to do any wood conditioning because of the color. But that’s up to you as I’m sure you’ll try a test piece.
