Thanks for the warm welcome and comments.
The finish on the plant stand was as follows.
Apply water based dye to set a base color. Lightly sand.
Apply 1 coat of clear shellac. Rub down with steel wool.
Apply walnut gel stain. Wipe off excess.
3 coats of clear shellac, rubbing with steel wool after each layer.
Apply brown Briwax and rub it out.
Really brings out the figure in QSWO.
