I don’t plan to dye and sand back, mostly with all the little spindles I concerned about getting everything the same. Also, since the little bugger is gonna chew on it etc, repairs would be tougher. I have not tried waterlox or tried and true varnish. I have not seen them locally. I like putting the antique oil on with sandpaper with walnut and it looks great. My concern with sanding the antique oil on over dye is sanding out the dye. That was the reason for my question about tinting it. I have gotten nice color on maple with just shellac. I may try an amber shellac and put the antique oil over it for a test. I don’t do a ton of work with maple.
