Mike, personally I cannot stand using any kind of stain on a project. Stains, in my opinion, change the natural color of the wood too much for my taste. I prefer to use oil finishes BLO, tung oil, etc and then once they dry, I use a paste wax such as Johnson’s. I really like the natural color of woods that I use on my projects and have no desire to color them artificially. If I had the piece that you describe above, that is exactly how I would finish it.
