I’m always torn between staining and leaving the wood natural but unfortunately basswood is too white for very much contrast. But i try to keep the stains subtle.

Jordan: A great project. I think that the stain gives a lot more definition to the items.

Great job.

I do think the stain makes it very attractive.

Jordan, the stain you’ve applied has merely accented and embellished this charming little piece. It is not only a stunning bit of craftsmanship, but a whimsical and heartwarming one as well.

The stain is a great addition! I really liked the piece as shown earlier, but the tinting just added a level of emotion that couldn’t be achieved otherwise. I see 3 happy souls there …
