I bought some Charles Neil pre-color conditioner and tried it out. Much better, in that there’s far less blotching, though the dye color isn’t as dark now – as expected. I think this is going to work out just fine, using the conditioner. Tomorrow I’ll try a few different dye combinations and also try some darker stains. What I have now looks good, but needs to be a bit darker.

This is the first anti-blotch method or treatment that I have used and liked. Good stuff. And this is apparently going to compensate for my poor judgement in choice of wood. Shoulda bought Walnut, but wanted to try something different. Oh, well, at least I’ve expanded my knowledge, so all is not bad.
