<You need a water based stain.>
I drove out to Woodcraft, but they were largely out of stock. At 15
bottle, I think I'll try to get my customer to narrow down on the
before I buy, but it looks like a good way to go. Now all I have to do
is find the
right piece of tiger maple. My mill shop buddies order in the rough
from a big
warehouse where they put special pieces to one side; he'll call over
they'll let me pick from what they've got, if they have anything.
A little bit goes a long way, trust me. I usually put isopropyl alcohol
into a jar for the amount of stain i think I will use, then I add the
TransTint dye stain drop by drop until I reach the color I want (using scrap
wood of course). For me (my projects are generally on the small side) a few
drops go a very long way.
