Seal the wood with shellac (dewaxed), use a wiping stain. LET IT DRY AFTER WIPING OFF!!! Did I say let it dry/cure? After achieving the stain color and depth that ya want, wipe on a glazing color for highlighting. Wipe off the glaze in areas that will look like the coloring has been “worn”. Final coating with a water based poly. It’ll take about 4 coats. Buff and wax.
Why birch?
