I’m building a table top, and going for a sort of antique honey/brown look. I’ve played around with various Minwax stains. However, I’m using pine, and with certain parts of the grain, they stain quite different than other parts. On my current piece, it’s almost brownish grey and orange. I am wanting less of a range of colors, I really like this.

You can also see some more furniture in action that have a really nice honey-esque color to them in this pdf I put together. My current piece is at the top so you can see what I don’t like. That was mixing special walnut and weathered oak stain by Minwax. I’m not opposed to using another wood like Maple or something. I’ve heard pine can be annoying to stain, it’s just what is readily available at the local hardware stores.

Have your say...
