I am not a staining expert and Charles Neil would probably be the best resource to drop a line to. However, I would personally avoid dye or stain in this particular case and, if my goal were to darken, I would probably lean towards a dilluted BLO mix. The piece is beautiful light and I would, at most, add dark wood accents and leave the color as is.
