I didn’t get to do all the dye/stain testing that I had planned for today, but I did get to try a few. All were either Transtint or JE Moser. The dark walnut wasn’t attractive. The Dark Wine Cherry looked real good, but the niece wants it darker and not so red. The medium Oak looked real good, but not dark enough. More testing required.

I don’t want to hide the grain, so that has to be factored in.

Blotch wasn’t bad. The wood surface was sanded to 320.
