What process did you use to get the pine that dark for the legs and look that even? It is a very nice look that my wife would love.

Thanks Steve. Considering how even the color is, I had expected that you had used some kind of sealer or anti-blotching formula. What brand of stain was that?

I used the following stain:OlympicWood stainDeep ebony 41558I brushed it on the surface, wiped it off after 3 minutes. Let it dry overnight, and rubbed the surface with a rough rag. When I brushed the clear coat, the stain started to mix a bit with the coat, my brush got a bit black. This gives the pretty even color. (I hope you understand, my English needs some brush up (I was born in Hungary))

Steve that is fabulous. I use pine for my shop cabinets and for some items in the house too. I know pine can be cupped and warped but pine is fine to me.
