Bumping this slightly older thread – I just finished a top using Cabot natural. I am very pleased with the grain pop I got, and not much darkening. Started with one coat of Zinsser seal coat cut 50% with naptha. Allowed to dry and sanded back with 180, followed by a quick hit with 220. Vacuum and mineral spirits wipe, then the stain. Have not put a finish coat on it yet, just the stain which I applied very liberally and then rubbed in until dry to the touch. The darkening is no more than I saw with a mineral spirits wipe down. I was pleased that I got no blotch at all, (despite what my poor photo skills may make it look like – the reddish tint and the darker areas are shadows from the garage lighting).
