Any tips for darkening Hard Maple to an almost "Dard Fumed Oak" color with
I've tried my Alcohol based Transtint and it still is splotchy. I tried
some water based JE Moser, no splotches but it looks so dead, so *flat*
combined the two and its a little better.
I'm going to try a Gel Stain over the dye tonight and see if that helps.
I haven't tried conditioner yet. I've got some, just haven't gotten around
to a test strip.
I sanded to 220 - should I have backed off to 120/150 or so?
I used Maple because that's what I had lying around. Had I know "she"
wanted it dark, I probably would'a picked something else.
Anyone have some tiplets(R) for coloring hard maple they can share?
