Thanks for the input Milo. That makes more sense, the reason I went with dye is because I wanted something that would go into the wood and really let the grain show, so with that I understand the risk you point out that comes with doing such. I’m still experimenting on a small scrap piece, and once I think I have the finish I want, I am going to do a larger piece (I have a left over 10”x15”x3/4” piece) for my final test run. I’ve done some smaller projects before and have used water-based finishes, never with dye, I just decided that I’d like to try something new. I do think that dying the wood before final assembly sound make it somewhat easier, since they are all flat pieces.
