There really is no such thing as a stupid question if you don t know the answer. What I am getting at is, if you don t know, ASK. There are many experts on this site that know tons of stuff and from what I have seen is that they will be happy to help you. Just my opinion.

There are also a lot of people posing as experts who will give you awful advice. I wish I could answer the OP’s question with authority, but I can’t. I’m far from an expert on stains.

I will suggest possibly trying dyes versus stains. It sounds like he wants clean grain that’s not “muddy” as he puts it. Dyes don’t contain the pigments that settle in the pores of wood. They color only and do a better job of highlighting the grain.
