I used red and yellow dyes on some walnut that had quite a bit of sapwood on it hoping the colors would show through. They did somewhat, coming out a little orange with some sanding and reapplication. However, I really messed it up when I put on a coat of waterlox. I should have used clear poly and it may have come out better. It’s a learning experience, and it gave me a new appreciation of Joe’s stunning work.
