OK.. I am taking my first step into actually trying to make a piece of
furniture. I am making a bed for my wife to surprise her for our
anniversary. I am making the bed out of soft white maple. She tends
to like dark stained wood. My thought is to take a piece of the maple
and give her two or three different stained choices.
What I am looking for is opinions on how to stain the wood.
Techniques, products.. etc. I am looking primarily for three things:
1) Something that will be easy to do
2) something that will look good
3) something to protect the finish.
Thanks for any hints/suggestions
