Finished my purple laminated wood project

http://www.corpsie.com/newsgroups/rec-woodworking-laminated-stock-done.jpg
Tada, purple.
And some of you thought I was a troll :-p ;-)
It is actually a lot darker, but I took the picture in the middle of the day and the flash on my camera kept going off.
IF you're curious as to what I finally did
1. put the wood in the oven for 20 minutes at 200 degrees F to raise all the oil to the surface (this thing wasn't finished)
2. Had some minwax water based stain mixed the "wildberry" color, poured out half the can and added a second shot of the "wildberry" color mixture.
3. Used tung oil to finish it. The tung oil took the purple from really really bright to the dark color that it is now.
I'd like to thank everyone that gave me the tips that helped me find the answers, especially Andy Dingley.

Typical? Orange? I don't mind the stock, not bad at all. But, I just can't see myself with a purple or orange stock. I could probably live with green, but wouldn't be thrilled. Generation gap I guess.
