I understand this fear of dyes… I was anti stain for many years, exploring the depths of the wood and it’s various colors within, but then I saw Blakes jelly fish table and decided to try colors.. then I saw Trifern’s vases and his blog on dyes... and fell in love.

So I am heading on that road as well, but already I have discovered different woods stain completely differently, so I am testing everything and documenting everything. Trying dyes in water, alcohol, naptha, danish oil, and a veneer softener… which actually seems to work the best on a variety of woods. I went with the best review i could find and decided to invest in a selection of types and colors of J.E. Moser’s from Woodcraft.
