Thanks for the replies. My terminology I am sure is wrong as I have just begun to think of finishes. I believe I do not want to stain but to deepen the existing wood. I have also begun to like the padauk more and more. As I read and look further I am thinking shellac or wipe on polly.

What color shellac flake would work with walnut, or with padauk ? would shellac look good on the birdseye?

So I guess to clarify, I wouold use shellac or wipe on poly after I use the wood conditioner. The shellac or poly would go on soon after the conditioner. If I get the shellac or polly completed and want more gloss can I use something further like laquer?

Thanks for having patience
