I agree with you guys that stain is not for beautiful wood … HOWEVER … you missed the point.
I have to match her other furniture color. In other words, this lady has a whole room full of matching furniture, and to add this table I gotta match it … all the other (production) stuff has a stain on it; I can match that. (it looks almost like ammonia fumed but it is a stain.)
I like the way that BLO makes the grain pop, then add a water based polly top coat. I have used tung oil with great success … and so on.
I was just asking in which order to apply the three … I think that I will do alot of test pieces and report back on how all this stuff that I should throw away and use for fire starters works out.
I thank you for your comments.
