well pat it is a wood like figured maple so we are going to have to dye it once then sand it off and then dye it again to get that nice color. remember though to use a more general term like finish instead of stain. I made that mistake once on walnut saying stain instead of finish and a lot of people thought that i actually wanted to stain the piece. I’ll probably do a dark cherry for the first coat and a light cherry for the second coat though so it has that really nice orangish-reddish flame color.

Have your say...
