I love the way this stain/dye turned out - dumb luck and a nice piece of wood; certainly not from any skill on my part. Keda aniline dye in water. Original plan was to do multiple layers of tru oil, but wondering how that will react with the water based dye. My dad has pro auto painting gear and he's very good at it, so I do have good access to lacquer. Main goal is to highlight the grain and color. Secondary goal to make it durable.
